Message from Provost Steven Lerman
The Estelle and Melvin Gelman Library will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We continuously try to balance the need to make sure that there is high quality study space available and operational efficiency.
The new Fenwick Gallery exhibition, Picturing Performance: a sampling of music, dance and theater imagery, highlights selected rarities and antiquarian prints held in George Mason University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives.
Examples include musical iconography and similar graphic materials which illustrate aspects of music, dance, and theater history or exemplify technical developments in the performing arts. The twelve selected items on exhibit reflect these genres, and includes engravings, lithographs, photographs, and drawings. The exhibit curators are Steven K. Gerber, MA, MLS, Music & Theater Librarian, and Rhianna Cockrell, George Mason Student/Library Intern. The exhibition is on display through September 18.
