The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and San José State University Department of Art and Art History are honored to present Picturing Our Library: Watercolors by SJSU Art Students, an exhibition in celebration of the library’s 10th anniversary. The exhibit was displayed in the library from September 3-30, 2013.
Rendered by San José State University art students under the instruction of Professor Gale Antokal, a collection of eighteen watercolors captures the remarkable vantage points of interior and exterior landscapes of the King Library. Our library is a center for knowledge, a symbol of innovation, a place of reflection, and it is a playground for the curious and imaginative. Highlighting the multiplicity our library, each watercolor presents our library as a monumental feat of architecture, intellectual resources, and cumulative experiences from our community. Our library gives its patrons as much as we give it, and the heart of our library is the bond we have chosen to cherish and develop over the past 10 years. Our library is a hub of possibility—whether inside it, outside it, or beyond it—our library is always with us.
