The new exhibit in the main lobby at HSL features information about the upcoming exhibit and also some related materials from the library.  HSL partnered with the Fulginiti to open this exhibit and the exhibit contains materials from both organizations.

Four Questions by Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman

The Fulginiti measured the case and added the great banner at the back of the case.  The images on the two sides of the case also show previous Holocaust-related exhibits that visited the Fulginiti.  On the left are images from the exhibit Four Questions by Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman, and on the right IWASWILLBE: The Holocaust Series, Paintings by Geoffrey Laurence.

Color Our Collections 2018

The 2018 Color Our Collections project, hosted by the New York Academy of Medicine, will run February 5-9.  The week-long international coloring fest on social media features images contributed by libraries, archives, museums, and other institutions from all over the world. All images are in the public domain and will be freely available with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. You are invited to browse, download, and color as many images as you like, and if you are so inclined, please share your creation on social media with the hashtag.

The Health Sciences Library offers eleven images from works in the Rare Materials Collection, ranging from 16th-century woodcuts to 19th-century wood engravings and lithographs, on an equally wide-ranging variety of topics. Many printed illustrations were intended to be hand-colored, especially those published before 1800, and while altering pages of the library’s rare treasures is usually discouraged, you are now encouraged to do exactly that.

While the #ColorOurCollections event only lasts one week, the images will be available all year at the event website: http://library.nyam.org/colorourcollections/

Rare materials are available to individuals or groups by appointment on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, or at other times by arrangement. To schedule an appointment, contact Emily Epstein, emily.Epstein@ucdenver.edu or 303-724-2119.
