A new art display is on view in the library. Curator Harrison Higgs writes:

Color, Baby is a visual essay questioning the nature of color and our relationship to it. The pieces are not proposed as “sculpture” (though a few items were created that way), nor is the display intended as a lesson in color theory. Instead, each case requires a different approach (in the making and in the viewing), highlighting some of the things people like about color. And though in this collection there are nuances, a few personal narratives, and an awareness of aesthetics, the exhibition aims mostly for a simple and visceral response to color.
