Life and Limb, the Toll of the American Civil War 

Opening reception : July 24th at 3 p.m. in the Library Reading Room - 3rd floor Presentation by Tess Jones (Center for Bioethics & Humanities) - Coming Home: the Returning Soldier in Literature and Film




"More than three million soldiers fought in the war from 1861-1865. More than half a million died, and almost as many were wounded but survived. Hundreds of thousands were permanently disabled by battlefield injuries or surgery, which saved lives by sacrificing limbs. These men served as a symbol of the fractured nation and remained a stark reminder of the costs of the conflict for long after the war."

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

Jay Zerbe - Abstract Juxtapositions

Chicago Artist Zerbe Exhibit at HS Library

Jay Zerbe abstracts

The University of Colorado Health Sciences Library will be hosting a display of small-scale collages by Chicago artist Jay Zerbe in its 3rd Floor Gallery.  The show, Abstract Juxtapositions will run from Feb. 1 through April 30th.  On display will be about 40 items dating from the last ten years.  According to Zerbe, “Collages, just by their (usual) small scale, invite an intimate relationship, with the artist as well as the viewer.  Unexpected relationships develop because of the juxtaposition of materials used.  Intuitive decision-making is inherent to the process.  Painted papers, graphite, ink, crayons, acrylic paint, found paper, and archival prints of my original materials and photographs generated and altered via the computer comprise my collage resources.”  The 2nd edition of a survey publication of Zerbe’s collages from 2003-2012  is now available at  Plan to visit the Library and experience this intimate, immediate show.
