Major Exhibits in the Gallery at the Commons
The Kennedy Library produces two major exhibits each fall and spring, in the Gallery at the Commons on the second floor in the Learning Commons. The Gallery at the Commons area is an open gallery space of 880 square feet, partially illuminated by natural light, where student study spaces are adjacent to and sometimes integrated within exhibits. This space also hosts traveling exhibits that support the campus curriculum.
These major exhibits provide opportunities for student curators and designers to assist with installation and graphic design of complex and exciting exhibits. Past exhibits have featured work by students and faculty from architecture to fine arts and biology to planetary science. Event openings and related events have featured demonstrations, guest talks, and hands-on workshops.
