Construction around north entrance to Doe, Sept 1

The campus will be adding names to the Builders of Berkeley wall, outside the north entrance to Doe Library, on Tuesday, September 1. The work will begin at 10:30 am and is expected to last until 5:00 pm.

Workers will erect a containment tent around the area and use a sandblasting tool to carve the names added to the wall. This work may cause some noise. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Hands On: An Evening with Artists' Books

Art by R.D. Burton

Is that a book?!

Yes, it is. Artists' books are one-of-a-kind art objects that defy conventional "reading" experiences by engaging the viewer through sight, touch, and physical manipulation. We think these books are too often locked behind exhibit cases.

The Environmental Design Library invites you to explore and enjoy 20 unique artist books at a special hands on event.

Time: Friday, August 28th from 4-6PM

Location: Atrium of the Environmental Design Library, 210 Wurster Hall

Hosted by David Eifler, Jennifer Osgood, Molly Rose and Lauri Twitchell
