The Libraries Exhibits Program highlights the strengths of the libraries’ collections and the creative scholarship of our KU campus community. In partnership with other cultural venues at KU and throughout our local and regional community, the exhibitions promote the scholarly and educational mission of the University, reflect the Libraries' commitment to freedom of information and cultural diversity, and stimulate academic discourse on campus.

Art Faculty at the University of Kansas for the First 150 Years Spring through Fall 2015
As part of the 2015 University of Kansas sesquicentennial celebration, “Art Faculty at the University of Kansas for the First 150 Years” celebrates many of the individuals who have taught art at KU since its founding. This exhibition, which is on view in the Murphy Art and Architecture Library until July, features about 70 artists representing various eras. It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all the KU art faculty but instead provides a glimpse of some of the talented artists who have worked with KU students over the years. The show was researched and assembled by Susan Craig based primarily on information found in the University Archives of the Spencer Research Library. Many of the images come from the Spencer Museum of Art’s Collection and from the campus.
