State University is located on the Northern Coast of California,
an area that is well known for its native beauty of redwoods,
beaches, rivers, mountains and wildlife. Humboldt is also
abundantly rich in talent, many artists live in this community,
and have flourished to become well known artists and are
prominent in their careers.
The Library displays a wonderful collection of art, many of the
paintings we have on display were created by the artists
who attended this University at one time.
Most of the artwork on display are on loan from the HSU Art Department's
permanent collection, and will occasionally change.
The University has recently acquired a new addition, a "20th Century Chinese Storytelling Screen", and I am happy to say, it is on display in the library. Be sure to check it out on the first floor.
furthering its educational mission, HSU Library maintains
a program of exhibits and displays of general educational or
cultural interest to the university community. These
cases are available by way of reservation. For more information,
please contact the Library
Be sure to catch the annual "Sculpture
Walk", presented by the Association of Student
Sculptors. This event is designed to showcase the wide
variety of artwork
produced by the HSU Sculptor program and usually occurs
April - May of every year, closing with commencement.
sculpture walk will take you on a journey across the
campus, as pieces are displayed in different buildings
or locations appropriate for each piece. Once again,
you will find that there is an abundance of high quality
art created on this campus.
This web tour will not only take you to the "art inside
the HSU Library", but will ALSO expose you to the other
works of art created by artists which may not be here in the
their biographies or resumes, and of course, BOOKS either
written or illustrated by the artist or about the artist.
out the location of the pieces by using the Art Map Locator!
be sure to also check out the other links which may be
of interest on each individual artist page, and be sure
to check this web site out from time to time, or even better,
come in and view the art up close!
