Student Art Collection at Herrick

For over twenty years Herrick Library has been collecting AU student art. Sometimes the library itself buys from the senior shows…

sometimes the library is given art from a committee which buys excellent student art to place across campus…

Blown glass rods

sometimes students really just want to leave a piece of their work at Alfred, and they give it to the library…

Sometimes art can just disappear when you’ve walked by it for a long time without really looking at it. When you’ve got a few spare minutes, check out the student art at Herrick. Most of the library’s student art is in the Learning Commons, and in the top floor hallway between the Children’s room and the East Wing (toward Alumni Hall.) Most pieces are identified by the name and graduation year of the artist. They’d be happy for you to stop by and see what they created.
