"Seek and Find" is the 2022 theme for this creative cartography exhibition.

For the 9th year, this exciting exhibition is a collaboration between the School of Art and the ASU Library. As part of sustainable art practice and exploration of related disciplines, students in the Art on Paper course brought new meaning to vintage topographical and geological maps originally withdrawn from the library collection. Inspired by the opportunity to work with maps, each artist created a two-dimensional and a three-dimensional original work of art.

The exhibit is open during regular Noble Library hours from Nov. 16 until Nov. 29. Plan your visit at lib.asu.edu/hours

Dutton’s Atlas: How Cartography Helped the Canyon Become Grand

Open during regular library hours from Oct. 22 until Dec. 2

Share:

"Dutton's Atlas" is the name given to a 19th century book and companion atlas authored by Clarence Dutton. It was published in the year 1882 as the first publication of the fledgling United States Geological Survey. The "Tertiary History of the Grand Cañon District" provided the the world's first comprehensive treatment of Grand Canyon geology. But its compelling combination of literary prose, maps and landscape art extended the reach of its impact far beyond that of pure science. Dutton's Atlas helped revolutionize how modern society came to conceptualize and valorize the Grand Canyon.

Explore the exhibit online and at Hayden Library until Dec. 2. Check Hayden Library hours to plan your visit.

The ASU Library is proud to feature “Print and the Protest,” a new exhibit at Fletcher Library. The exhibit will be open Oct. 5 until Dec. 10. 

The works exhibited feature prints made by students in the “Print and the Protest” course during the spring 2022 semester. This cross-listed course is co-taught by faculty from both Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance and English programs housed in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies (SHArCS). 

In the course, students learned the art of letterpress and studied the role of print in histories of protest. Combining literary and historical analysis of movements for social changes, this course offered students hands-on experience producing prints of their own design.

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 the ASU 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.

Plan your visit. 

ASU students, staff and faculty can access the Downtown Phoenix campus Library in University Center with their Sun Card. Open to the public by appointment only.

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.
