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

The Library serves as a center for learning and cultural enrichment for the Missouri University of Science and Technology. The exhibition of art, film and other cultural and historical artifacts relating to the campus and surrounding community is important to the cultural enrichment and education of our students, campus employees and our local community.

The committee shall choose from it's membership a secretary to keep official minutes of meetings and to perform other duties agreed to by the committee.
