Bailey/Howe Library has added a brand new quiet study room on the second floor. The room features more desktop work space, discreet privacy walls, comfortable chairs, plenty of power outlets and top-of-the-line lighting. Most importantly, though, the room provides silence for those who need it. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful and quiet study area we’ve created!

Basquiat: An Intimate Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

On exhibit, January-March 2013, in the lobby of Bailey/Howe Library, “Jean-Michel Basquiat: An Intimate Portrait,” offers a portal into the life of an artist on the threshold of taking the art world by storm. As photographed by Nicholas Taylor, these images of a 19-year-old Basquiat capture his emotions and personality, which, in turn, reflect his struggle for fame and respect. The accompanying text panels, written by Taylor, document the friendship the two shared and also serve to contextualize the historical significance of Basquiat in the early eighties.

This exhibition is on loan from the Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University, and was curated by Michael J. Beam, Curator of Exhibitions at the Castellani Art Museum.
