Working with international artists and designers Maja Kuzmanovic and Nik Gaffney of FoAM, the Desert Humanities initiative at ASU is hosting a desert ecology listening salon at Hayden Library.

Kuzmanovic and Gaffney traveled the desert in two years of site visits with ASU’s D.A.R.E. team collecting artifacts and sounds. From these experiences, they have created a desert sounds vinyl album and series of accompanying images for the salon. Further books, maps and images are supplied by the Hayden Library and its archives. 

Thanks goes to the Global Institute of Sustainability, the Institute for Humanities Research and the Center for Philosophical Technologies for assisting in funding this initial salon, and thanks to Hayden Library and its dedicated staff for space and creative research.

An opening reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 23, and the salon will run through Dec. 7 in the Hayden Library.

Inspired by maps, this art exhibition explores the interconnections and contrasts between "Old and New."

Students in Ellen Meissinger’s Art on Paper class within the School of Art, part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, collaborated with the ASU Library's Map and Geospatial Hub to create an art exhibition inspired by creating unique art pieces on maps. This is the sixth year for this exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between the School of Art and the Map and Geospatial Hub.

The "Old and New" exhibit can be viewed during Map and Geospatial Hub open hours, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m (closed on university holidays). No registration required. 

The exhibit reception is set to take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Nov. 26.
