It's a science in New Haven. A Library Science

NEW HAVEN — New Haven Public Library is pleased to announce its participation in ArtSpace’s upcoming exhibition “Library Science.”
Curator Rachel Gugelberger has put together an exhibition featuring library-inspired works of 22 contemporary artists from across the nation in a wide range of formats, including drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, painting and web-based projects.
“Library Science” explores our physical, intellectual and personal relationships with the library, and how libraries are adapting to the digital world.“Library Science” seeks to encourage relationships between libraries and artists, connecting the creation of artwork with access to research assistance and information.
As part of the ArtSpace initiative, artist Heather Lawless has created a site and situation-specific project at the downtown branch of New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.
