For the past few years, Murphy Library has partnered with the Department of Art to produce an ongoing art exhibition series featuring the artwork of UW-L students, faculty, and staff. The exhibitions run for about a month and feature a variety of artistic works ranging from painting, metalwork, sculpture, quilting, drawing, and much more. Check back often as we post more information about upcoming shows.

Murphy Library will host an artist meet and greet for an art exhibition featuring the works of UW-L art students Jill Bagniefski, Brechtje Bennett, Jim Bennett, Mellissa Buss, Megan Danahy, Jenna Gilmore, Nicole Herrmann, Carrie Hilson, Lauren Keesler, Olivia Kennedy, Natalie Kotnik, Danielle Nolden, Amy Peplinski, Ellen Pfeffer, Alyssa Shurbert-Hetzel, Charleton Skinner, Stacey Smith, Kelsey Walsh. The reception is from 3:00 -4:00 p.m. Wednesday, Nov 13, 2013 in Murphy’s Mug.
The coffee shop on the first floor of Murphy Library features the works of UW-L Students. The exhibition, titled “Selections from the Painting Studio”, runs from October 25 till November 16. The art works were selected from Painting classes lead by professor Jennifer Williams Terpstra.
Terpstra explains the show:
"The work in this show was developed throughout various levels of painting. Students in the introductory level have been studying spatial illusion in interior and exterior environments and exploring the attributes of the medium of oil. Other primary concerns include design, light and shadow, and the role of color in creating a complete painting.”
The artist event and exhibition are a partnership with Murphy Library and the Art Department.

As a pilot project, Room 12, in the library basement, has been converted to a silent
study room. Many students ask for an environment even quieter than the library’s designated quiet
areas, so this room is intended to answer that need.
For more information on this space please see our blog. We look forward to learning how this room fulfills its intended
purpose. Please let us know how it is working for you. Send feedback on this space to
To provide more computers during the busy period at the end of the semester, the library is opening
an additional room with computers. Room 30, a computer classroom in the basement of the library,
will open during regular library hours starting December 1, 2013. Students will be able to use the desktop
computers in that room individually or in groups.
