How Secretaries Changed the 20th-Century Office: Design, Image, and Culture
February 6 - May 23, 2010
During the 20th century women poured into offices all over the U.S. to work as "typewriter girls," stenographers, and secretaries. New spaces, furnishings, and clothing emerged to meet their needs, while popular culture glamorized them. The exhibition explores transformations in the workplace and women's lives and features office equipment, furniture, fashions, magazines, and much more.

Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library

Native Viewpoints: Paintings and drawings by John Koepke
February 12 - May 14, 2010. Opening event Friday, Feb. 12, 5-7 p.m.
The drawings and illustrations on exhibit in the Architecture & Landscape Architecture Library span more than a decade of Koepke's work, featuring his newest watercolors and illustrations. The playful display of the work expresses Koepke's affinity for nature and appropriately integrates the inventive character of his work with real elements from the landscape.
