Hydration Stations in Dimond Library

October 22, 2013

Hydration Station

We have installed two new hydration stations in Dimond Library on Level 1 and Level 3 (Main Floor). They are located between the bathrooms where the old water fountains were previously. These stations have been installed across campus to promote sustainability and to provide clean, filtered water to all students. The hydration stations make filling your water bottle easier, more hygienic, and more environmentally friendly than a normal water fountain.

Relaxing in a Madhouse, paintings by John Angelopoulos, poems by Charles Simic in Special Collections

October 3, 2013

“Relaxing in a Madhouse, Paintings by John Angelopoulos, Poems by Charles Simic” is now open in Milne Special Collection’s Dunleavy Reading Room. The display features 12 of Angelopoulos’ paintings inspired by the Pulitzer Prize winning poetry of Professor Emeritus and former U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic.

Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Simic is known for his surreal, metaphysical poems. His first collection “What the Grass Says” was published 1967. Since then, he has published more than 60 books.

Angelopoulos’ paintings for the exhibit were created based on his interpretation of selections from “The World Doesn’t End,” the collection that won Simic the Pulitzer Prize in 1990.

Special Collections is located on Level 1 in Dimond Library. The exhibit will be on display until October 26 and can be viewed Monday through Friday, 10 AM-4 PM and Saturday 12 PM-4 PM.

Call for entry for art and fine crafts by UNH staff

May 20, 2013

The University Museum in Dimond Library announces its second campus-wide staff arts and fine crafts exhibition, September 13 – December 13, 2013. The exhibit will recognize our creative colleagues for work they do outside their day (or night) jobs at UNH. Original art and fine crafts in any media will be considered.

Eligible staff include all faculty (see exception) and staff, full and part-time, hourly and benefits eligible. The exception is studio arts faculty who have opportunities to exhibit their work in the UNH Museum of Art.

The small size of the University Museum restricts the number of works that can be exhibited. An anonymous jury will make selections using the blind jury process (applicants' names will be removed from the forms for the jury process). For those artists selected for participation, not more than one work will be included in the exhibition.

Applicants may submit up to two entries, must complete the Call for Entry form, and send a photo image of each entry to dale.valena@unh.edu.

All entry forms with photos must be received no later than the deadline of July 29, 2013. If you prefer, you can mail your form and photo to the University Museum, Dimond Library, 18 Library Way, Durham, NH 03824 by the July 29 deadline.

Thanks for your entry and good luck!
