Stop by the bookmobile at Jittery Joe’s on the 2nd floor of the Miller Learning Center to check out a book on the spot. UGA Librarians have selected over 100 books including fiction, non-fiction and, of course, literary love stories. Fall in love with a book!
Patricia Van Dalen (1955), a Venezuelan-born artist, has long been interested in abstraction, color, and the intervention of large architectural spaces. Fragmented Light (2011), created specifically for UGA’s Miller Learning Center, is a composition made of brightly-colored adhesive tapes that transforms the walls between the MLC’s third and fourth floors, accompanying students as they climb up and down the stairs and lending chromatic vibrancy to a place of study. The installation was created with the help of student and staff volunteers from UGA and the Athens community. It will be on view between January 21st and May 21st, 2011.
More about Van Dalen’s work can be found at www.patriciavandalen.com
