Tompkins-McCaw Library Gallery
The Tompkins-McCaw Library gallery features original exhibits of visual art pertaining to the health sciences or created by students or professionals in health-sciences fields. Incorporated into the main first-floor study and browsing area, the gallery is intended to foster dialogue among patrons about the interplay of science, creativity and beauty.
Current and Upcoming Exhibits
In January and February of 2014, Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences invited submissions of microscopic images from VCU students, faculty and staff. More than 40 images were submitted for consideration, and 24 are featured in the exhibit held in the library's gallery. Images were analyzed and scored by Scott Henderson, Lara Mabry, Rene Olivares-Navarrete and Ning Zhang on the basis of aesthetic appeal, technical skill and scientific significance. Anders Hånell, Ryan Clohessy and Gireesh Reddy are recipients of prizes and best-in-show honors.
