We have New Displays!
Every time we see any of our amazing art teachers coming into the Main Library, we get really excited. We love getting to see student works, and we really do feel like it improves the environment. While we know not everyone is an art enthusiast, in the library, we have always tried to make sure we have something for everyone and that the space is valuable to each individual in their own way. To that end, appreciating art naturally fits in the library.
“Art is meant to stimulate thought and conversation between its viewers. By reflecting on a piece of art, we delve into our own experiences and nostalgia. Thus a piece of art means something different to every person that comes across it.” (EducationWorld)
We currently have two massive displays at the library. Plus, our typical displays we maintain via our MS Library Council and the Librarians. First, as you approach the library, you will see the ‘This turns into that’ artwork from Middle School. Having been here for some time, this is definitely some of the highest caliber work we have seen and is a tribute to both the teaching and learning taking place in MS Arts. On wooden display boards, you will have loads of different media types and thoughtful displays of individualized artwork.
Inside the library, you will find some of the HS IB artwork from IASAS competitions which, in some cases, takes your breath away and in others, surprises the viewer. These works, again, are in all types of mediums, from castings to 2D paint. It really is beautiful.
Lastly are the standard displays, which are meant to highlight the new books that we are currently ordering for the library based on our checkout stats. Stop by and take a look at some of the fall displays and some of the new books.
