Exhibit Spaces in the Library

The Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons primarily supports two exhibit spaces on campus, the Guarracino Family Gallery and the CEIS Showcase.  

The Guarracino Family Gallery in the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons offers more traditional exhibition opportunities. The space is located to the left of the Library’s entrance on the second floor of Beatty Hall. The Library has eight white pedestals (23”x23”x42”), clear acrylic cases, and three large-scale digital display screens (23”x42”) that can be used for exhibits in the Guarracino Gallery.

Past exhibits at the Guarracino Family Gallery have included: a display of 3D-printed surrogates of archeological artifacts; renderings and models of public art proposals for installation in the lobby of a new building; and examples of 3D-printed work completed in the Library’s own Technology Sandbox.

The CEIS Showcase in the Center for Engineering, Innovation and Sciences (CEIS) Building is a less conventional exhibition space with opportunities for creative displays. The space is a large vitrine located on the first floor of the CEIS Building, facing south. This space can be viewed from both inside and outside the building and provide continuous engagement during events in the CEIS lobby. Past exhibits in the CEIS Showcase have included: displays of large-scale two-dimensional art, architectural drawings, and archival materials.

While exhibition spaces are in protected areas, the Library cannot assume responsibility for the loss of or damage to exhibited materials. All items placed in the Library are at the owner’s risk.

Exhibitors are responsible for installing and uninstalling work, supplying marketing materials, and coordinating collaborations with third parties (for example, Department of Technology Services or Sodexo). The Library is happy to assist with installation/deinstallation and disseminating marketing materials on campus and beyond.

Please ask about supplemental spaces that can also be used for exhibits. Spaces not typically designated for exhibits may be considered for temporary exhibits. The Café area near the Guarracino Gallery is available for opening receptions or other activities (workshops, talks, demonstrations) linked to exhibits. Any events related to an exhibit are the sole responsibility of the Exhibitor.
