Two New Exhibits Open at Gallery Night on Friday March 6

TCPL presents two new exhibits at an opening reception being held in conjunction with Gallery Night from 5 to 8 PM on Friday, March 6.

The Cornell Boys (and Girls) in the Boat features a single scull built by the renowned boat builder George Pocock, photographs of Cornell Rowing including images from the early 1900's which call to mind scenes featured in the book "The Boys in the Boat - Nine Americans and their Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics" by Daniel James Brown and other artifacts.
Ann Piombino from the Ithaca Youth Farm
12 Seniors from LACS present Inspiring Ithacans.

Owen Lennon, Keegan Bakos, Billie Joe, Adrienne Wooster, Adrian Clavel, Caleb Lucas, Michael Belle and Violet Briggs photographed and interviewed some of the many people who have done selfless acts to benefit our community and display a gallery of their photographs and the interviews in the Avenue of the Friends. Join us at Gallery Night as we pay homage to these people and celebrate their innovative acts. 

After 5:00 PM please enter the Library through the BorgWarner Community Room Door behind the bus shelter on Green Street.

The exhibit "The Cornell Boys (and Girls) in the Boat" has been made possible through the support of Cornell Athletics and the Cornell Rowing Program.
