Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place

The Walsh Gallery, in collaboration with the Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation, is pleased to present Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place.

Key to this exhibition is the idea that place irrevocably impacts our sense of self. Kiki’s drawings and prints look to the natural world to understand the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level. Seton’s large-scale photographs look to the built environment to convey associations by moving within, and navigating through, space. Contextualized in this manner, the artists explore the complex psychological and emotional terrain to be negotiated in understanding the self and the manner in which place becomes a defining characteristic of identity. The fragility of the human condition and the places we traverse in our mortal journey are the narrative impulse of this exhibition.

The Exhibition runs 10/30/16 to 12/9/16.

Join us to see why NJ.com calls this exhibit one “that shouldn’t be missed.”

Group Study Room Survey

In Walsh library, we have 27 Group Study Rooms spread out between the 3rd & 4th floors.

Group Study Room keys can be checked out by a group of students and must be returned by the end of the day (when the library closes). There is an 8-hour daily limit imposed on groups using study rooms during finals (when the library is open 24 hours) in both Fall and Spring semesters. Our complete group study room policy is here.

Due to heavy demand this semester, all group study rooms are claimed and in use by noon each weekday.

We would like to make more group study rooms available to more students, and are seeking student feedback with a brief survey.

Currently enrolled SHU students may take part in this survey by going here: http://shu.libsurveys.com/Study-Room-Survey

Thanks to all who participate!
