Adelante Comunidad: New exhibit showcases four decades of graphic arts by the Stanford Chicanx & Latinx community
Adelante Comunidad opens this week in the South Lobby of the East Wing of Green Library. The exhibit, which draws on posters and other materials from the collections of the Stanford University Archives, celebrates over four decades of graphic arts produced by the Stanford Chicanx and Latinx community. Many of the posters were transferred from El Centro Chicano y Latino earlier this year, and highlight educational events and speaking series sponsored by El Centro, and Stanford MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán).
The University Archives is pleased to announce the release of a new online exhibit documenting the history of women at Stanford.
With deep sadness, I note the passing on May 17, 2018, of Marnie Furbush, a remarkable friend and ally of Stanford Libraries and Special Collections over many years. Staff who’ve worked in Green Library for a long time may remember her gracious ways, keen intellect, and generosity. Marnie befriended everyone whose path she crossed, from the mail room to the directors’ office.
This Thursday, May 24, from 1-3pm, stop by the Barchas Room to see a selection of Stanford Library materials documenting the various protest movements happening around the world in 1968.
