This year's Art in Libraries exhibition features a broad range of work by U of M students and faculty. The artists explore the theme RESOURCE • RETURN • RECYCLE as questions, factors, and implications to be interpreted both literally and conceptually. In this way, the exhibition reflects the condition, process, and cycle, which establish the identity of the artists' work.

Selections from the Francis V. Gorman Rare and Special Art Book Collection have been highlighted in annual exhibitions since 2003. These exhibitions have focused on themes such as celebrity culture, graphic design, the history of exhibition catalogs, and the ritual of reading, to suitably and beautifully reveal the rare materials in the collection. By extending the curatorship to especially appointed graduate students, the exhibits serve as a scholarly and collaborative opportunity between faculty, students, departments, and the Libraries. These curatorial contributions will be showcased in this year's retrospective.
