Art in the Library Committee

Science will...produce the data...but never the full meaning. For perceiving real significance, we shall need... most of all the brains of poets, (and) also those of artists, musicians, philosophers, historians, writers in general. - Lewis Thomas

Requirements and policy details can be found on this page. We encourage you to submit your artwork for consideration. Prizes are awarded for winning submissions.
