    Virginia Tech in the 1960s exhibit , video

    The VT in the 1960s exhibit is a culmination of a class project from the class America in the 1960s. The class surveys the big picture of the 1960s, charting all kinds of social, political, and cultural change. To create the posters, students flipped through copies of The Virginia Tech newsletter, housed in Special Collections and University Archives, to find an article that stood out to them. Focusing on the history of student life at Virginia Tech was a great way to apply the historical information in a way that was relatable and allowed them to place that information into the bigger historical context.

    In Search of Beauty , video

    In Search of the Beauty of Nature by Tianming Zhao is an exhibit featuring watercolor paintings and leaf prints inspired by natural beauty. The appreciation of nature is always a guideline for organic architecture. Each leaf, twig and stone have stories to tell, and when combined, they compose a sonata of art and architecture. In a similar but more abstract way, the skills of watercolor are often applied to express the beauty of nature. This exhibit was on display along the Art & Architecture Gallery wall, located in the Art & Architecture library in Cowgill Hall. There are plans to host additional exhibits and artwork in the future so be sure to stop by and stay tuned for more. Video by Liz McVoy and Sophia Trout for Virginia Tech
