Explore "Psyche Inspired," a new art exhibit at Fletcher Library on the West campus. On dispaly during regular library hours from until Dec. 9. 

Psyche is both the name of an asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter — and the name of a NASA space mission to visit that asteroid, led by Arizona State University. The NASA Psyche Inspired program brings undergraduate students from any discipline or major together to share the excitement, innovation, and scientific and engineering content of NASA’s Psyche mission with the public in new ways through artistic and creative works. The works from Psyche Inspired are shared in an online gallery and in downloadable books that tell the story of Psyche through musical scores, sculptures, painting, 3-D models, photography, acrylic art, needlepoint, stop-motion films, mixed media, and more.

Visit Fletcher Library to see the artworks on display until Dec. 9.

Over the course of Humanities Week 2022, the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies is celebrating unsung heroes: extraordinary, yet overlooked people whose actions created changes within their communities and around the world. SHPRS staff, faculty and graduate students selected works that tell the stories of these people and groups whose hard work and noteworthy achievements made a lasting historical impact. This collection aims to acknowledge those who have often been left out of the widely known narratives of their times. SHPRS extends its great appreciation to the Hayden Library collections staff for making this collection a reality.

This Unsung Heroes collection is part of The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ Humanities week, a weeklong celebration of the human adventure across time, history, culture, and place. Discover how studying the humanities can lead to a fulfilling life and a more just world by picking up one of the books in the collection, or by attending one of the many events during the week. For more information, please visit links.asu.edu/HumanitiesWeek22

You can view the collection in the concourse lobby of Hayden Library on the Tempe campus.

Palimpsests of Arizona History, Palimpsestos de la Historia de Arizona

Visit "Palimpsests of Arizona History," a new exhibit at the Downtown Phoenix campus Library. On display during regular library hours from Sept. 9 until Dec. 9. 

Arizona History is a palimpsest, a story layered over continuing preexisting stories — they are unrecognized stories that have been heavily erased and ignored. But Arizona’s Mexican heritage has been, and is, all around us. “Palimpsests of Arizona History” is a visual exhibition created and curated by Pete Dimas in collaboration with ASU’s School of Human Evolution and Social Change. It aims to uncover this overwritten history dating back to the 16th Century and explore the ways in which Mexicans and Mexican Americans have deeply shaped the geography, food, work force, architecture, and culture of contemporary Arizona.

'The Blind Man and the Elephant: Paintings of Eric Boos' Exhibition

Open during library hours from Aug. 27 until Dec. 15.

“The Blind Man and the Elephant: Observation and Discovery in the recent paintings of Eric Boos” is the latest exhibit inside the Vault Gallery at the Downtown Phoenix campus Library. The exhibit will be open during library hours starting Aug. 27 until Dec. 15.

The paintings are acrylic on board, occasionally with mixed media such as crayon and other drawing media. “I think of paint as a substance rather than a coating, which leads me to heavily textured paintings,” Boos explains. “The textures become miniature landscapes in their own right.” 

“I believe that all art is ultimately about human beings and the human experience, so lately I have decided to go directly to the source, focusing my work on portraits of myself, friends and family members,” Boos adds. 

Boos says the name for the exhibit comes from “an old meme before there were memes. It references a number of blind men encountering an elephant by touching it. Depending on where they touch the elephant, they give very different descriptions of the beast. In other words, it’s about observation and discovery, and trying to make sense of everything.” 

Boos has been living and working in the Prescott area for over 30 years. He lives in a house he and his wife, Laura, designed and built about 13 years ago. The house is half studio space and half living space. 

While Boos is currently an adjunct instructor at Yavapai College, teaching art classes, he has spent most of his life making his living as an artist. Until a few years ago, he was known for his unusual ceramic sculptural pieces, but more recently he has turned to painting. 

Recent exhibitions include a 2020 Online Faculty Exhibition at Yavapai College, Prescott, Arizona; 2019, Solo Exhibition, Gammage Auditorium, Tempe, Arizona; 2019, Tempe Library Exhibition, Tempe, Arizona; 2019, Faculty Exhibition, Yavapai College, Prescott, Arizona. In his career, he has exhibited works across the nation. 

Boos has a BA in ceramics from University of California at Santa Cruz and a master’s degree in fine arts in ceramics from California State University at Long Beach. The Vault Gallery exhibit will be up from Aug. 27 through Dec. 15. His website is ericboos.com.
