Exhibit Programs

The Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) Exhibit Program connects KSL collections, Case Western Reserve University scholarship and programming, and the greater community through experiential learning and visual engagement. This promotes KSL’s role as a campus and community gathering space, as well as providing an initiative found in all premier academic university libraries. Through images, text, artifacts, artworks, and multimedia KSL Exhibits communicates the thesis of an exhibition and creates aesthetically interesting spaces.
