Fragments from the Library of Babel

The student mural Fragments from the Library of Babel was created during Fall 2017 as part of the Mixed-Media/Print Media 3 classes taught by Maja Godlewska and Erik Waterkotte.

Working collaboratively, students incorporated digital photography, computer graphic manipulations, and large digital printouts with acrylic paint on PVC panel. The multi-piece mural was installed in Hight Architecture Library in Storrs Hall in March 2018.

visualizing science image

The library hosted the exhibit and competition, Visualizing Science: Microscopic Images from UNC Charlotte, in Fall 2015, which now continues as a digital exhibit.

The exhibit highlights the role of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in scientific advancement. Faculty, staff, students, and alumni were invited to submit research images or "scientific art" produced with any type of microscope.
