Friday, April 7, 2017 marks the opening of the William S. Richardson School of Law Library’s 2nd Art Show. This year’s exhibition is titled “Boundaries,” and will feature artistic interpretations on the theme in a variety of media.
The library’s first event was held in 2015, and focused on themes of social justice. As with the last show, this event will feature submissions from faculty, staff, and students, in addition to alumni and the extended law school ʻohana. “Boundaries” is a product of the collaborative efforts of the law library’s art committee, led by committee chair and reference librarian Roberta Woods, and builds upon the excellent rotating selection of works already installed in the library by the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts: Art in Public Places lending collection. The art committee hopes that the added works submitted by law school ʻohana will serve as a platform to discuss contemporary issues in law and justice through the lens of artistic expression.
A special reception will be held in the lobby of the library from 5pm to 8:30pm to commemorate the opening, and will feature refreshments for attendees, a program of artists’ biographies, and a performance by the Pacific Tongues, a nonprofit organization and community of spoken word artists. Following the opening reception, the “Boundaries” exhibit will remain on display to the public during regular library hours through May 14th.
