James J. Waring Limited Editions Collection

Exhibit runs through June 30 – Anderson Academic Commons, upper level

James J. Waring, MD (1883-1962) was an internist, professor and scholar, and his love for learning went far beyond the bounds of medicine. He enjoyed a wide range of subjects, including poetry, Western history, science fiction and literature. 



Exhibit runs through July 19 – Anderson Academic Commons, Special Collections (room 101)

Reduction/Revelation explores two approaches to data visualization from a single source –words and phrases from the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE). In the dictionary, DARE researchers used map graphics to summarize and represent lingual differences across states. Artist Carrie Roy approaches the visualization of this same data differently. Roy reveals the regional variations of specific words through sculpture. Her artworks create a tangible, visceral information experience, reminding us of the importance of human connection and creativity in understanding data.


Exhibit runs through July 26 – Anderson Academic Commons, upper level

The 1920s ushered in a new style of cartography that almost caricatures traditional maps. Designed by modern artists, these maps were created for tourism, commercial advertising, or to illustrate the news and other themes. Known as “Pictorial Maps,” they integrated narrative, geography and a sense of humor in a way that was both useful and visually striking. This exhibit, drawn from the private collection of Wesley Brown, follows the innovative style of pictorial mapping from the 1920s through the 1980s.
