Traveling Exhibits

Listed below are exhibits originating as part of our exhibition series. Most feature collections or services our library provides for communities. In addition, we have sponsored exhibits of works by UConn students. These exhibits are available for communities in Connecticut to borrow.

  • Peace Corps Posters: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps

This exhibit is our first UConn student exhibit. All designs are by students in professor Cora Lynn Deibler's Fall 2010 'Topics in Illustration' class. There is no online exhibit at this time, but here is a UConn Today article about the project: http://today.uconn.edu/blog/2010/12/illustrating-the-peace-corps-experience/  


The exhibit consists of twenty-eight 18”w x 24”h full color posters mounted on foam core and one 8.5”w x 14”h  brief introduction about the exhibit.  Each poster has a foam core mounted caption by the designer giving their name and what inspired their design.
