The staff of the UWRF University Archives and Area Research Center created 14 display boards for the kickoff event celebrating the 100th anniversary of North Hall. The event—held Tuesday February 4, 2014, in North Hall—was a Series on Innovation & Excellence program and featured a tour and scavenger hunt throughout the building. The displays will be up in North Hall through Friday, February 7 — UPDATE: they will be up for several weeks. More events celebrating the anniversary will occur throughout the year.

Check out more photos of this event:

The photographs used in the displays are all from the UWRF Archives’ collections. The Archives also plans an exhibit of the original vintage photographs in their display windows on the first level of the Chalmer Davee Library.

“Animal Invasion” in the library!

Students in Asako Nakauchi’s Intro to Sculpture class are currently exhibiting metal amalgam creatures on the library’s main level.  The students were asked to create animals that do not exist by mixing parts of 2 or more animals or–better yet–borrowing from imaginary animals!  Asako’s students will be exhibiting metal sculpture through December 3rd so stop by and peruse!
