Hot Off the Press: Big Box Reuse

Professor Julia Christensen’s new book Big Box Reuse recently hit bookstores and has been receiving nothing but great press. In this project, Julia explores how 10 different communities have transformed former Wal-Mart buildings into schools, libraries, community centers, and churches. The book was featured on All Things Considered on NPR. The Chronicle Review also ran a feature on the book. Julia will be speaking about it on November 20th at 4:30 in the Moffett Auditorium in Mudd Library. Check it out on display in the art library or on Amazon, and be sure to attend her lecture.

Get Your Art Library T-shirts

Want to show your love for the Clarence Ward library? We are currently selling t-shirts featuring a decal of the “Venturi Castle,” a design by Obie grad Julia Feldman (08). Shirts are currently $16, but if enough students are interested, the price will drop to $13. For your money, you get a three-color silkscreen on a natural cream colored American Apparel unisex cotton tee. Shirts are available in sizes small through extra large. If you’re interested, let us know by Tuesday! We will need your name, phone number, and the size of the T-shirt you want. Just come into the library to order one.
