Exhibit Backstory

Inter-Departmental Collaboration Leads to a Beautiful Exhibit!

We were intrigued when the Theatre and Dance folks approached us about collaborating on this exhibit back in 2012.

Theatre staffer April Rodriguez had apparently collected reams of material, created several rough renderings of posters she wished realized, and generally had done much of the legwork required to produce a cohesive exhibit!

So it was that April and the Library - together with help from the folks at the campus' Media and Technology Service (MATS) - began a very easy and fruitful collaboration in which we turned out over twenty 36" x 72" wall posters in time for the Library's Fall Exhibit in 2012!

At our end (in the Library), we simply created the poster layouts using the graphics supplied by the Theatre Department, and then printed these. April even helped us hang the posters!
