What do Diana Ross, Metallica, and the Osmonds have in common? They’ve all played at McKenzie Arena. Some of music’s biggest names toured at the arena since it opened in 1982, and their posters are now on display at Special Collections at the Lupton Library.
The Lupton Library isn’t just filled with books. The Special Collections also houses paintings, sculptures, and artifacts, some which are on display in its newest exhibit, “Distant Sands and Faraway Lands: Art, Books and Artifacts from Around the World.” Pottery from Ecuador, art from Japan and China, books from England, Italy, and the Netherlands, and documents and art from England and Germany are featured.
As this year’s election race heats up, voters see politicians plugging in everywhere, including social media sites. This has some wondering what the political scene was like before the explosion of campaign ads and political Twitter updates.
In anticipation of this summer’s Olympic Games, the Special Collections of the UTC Lupton Library is exhibiting books, photographs, and mementos from the Berlin Olympics of 1936.
The history of all times, and of today especially, teaches that…women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves. —Louise Otto, German feminist, 1849 A new Lupton Library Special Collections spring exhibit Women and the Cultural Record: An Exploration and Celebration is on display until May 5.
