NEW ALBANY, Ind. – Interested in seeing light displays that illuminate entire buildings? Hearing a musical montage that tells America’s story? Exploring a mobile app that records real, live data for science experiments?
The IU Southeast Library, along with the IU Southeast Research and Grants Committee, is sponsoring the annual Authors & Artists Showcase from Nov. 17-Jan. 6 in the Library Art Gallery to highlight the achievements of faculty, students, and staff.
A reception to honor the participants in this showcase will take place on Nov. 19 from 12:15-2 p.m. in the Library Art Gallery (lower level). Refreshments will be served.
The gallery will feature internationally recognized work such as associate professor of music Erich Stem’s America By project; assistant professor of biology Omar Attum’s book “Sinai: Landscape and Nature in Egypt’s Wilderness;” and assistant professor of fine arts Tiffany Carbonneau’s video installation art.
“The America By project gives me the chance to help tell the story about America’s unique towns through music,” Stem said. “My hope is to eventually create a musical montage that gives listeners a glimpse into the rich history of the United States.”
The community is welcome to meet and greet the authors and artists, many of whom will have research, creative works, and/or artwork on display in the library.
The full list of contributors to the Authors & Artists Showcase can be found on the Library’s website.
