Mann LIbrary 237 Mann Drive, Cornell University
Mann Library has kicked off the fall 2021 semester with a lively roster of exhibits in our fully re-opened library. We are pleased to invite the Cornell community to come check them out at our Fall 2021 Exhibit Expo. Stop by Mann Library anytime between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon to meet Finger Lakes artist June Szabo along with the other curators and collaborators, including Cornell's renowned Plant Pathology Herbarium Collection (CUP), behind our fall 2021 exhibits. Visitors are warmly invited to come have fun with interactive displays, discover the fascinating side- and back-stories to the installations on view in our building, and browse our featured exhibits at their leisure.
Wood-carved and woven renditions of Finger Lakes landscapes & lichen, a vast and intriguing collection of mushroom specimens, hidden messages in flower bouquets, exquisite 19th century glass sea life sculptures, and dramatic stories of suppressed science—there's much thought-provoking and beautiful art and science to explore!
