The Leatherby Libraries Hall of Art was established to showcase the creativity of the Chapman community. It was dedicated for this purpose in 2014 although the space has been available for staff and student exhibits since 2011. The Hall of Art is devoted exclusively to the display of student work during the academic year, and to staff art during the summer. While past staff art exhibits featured work by Leatherby Libraries staff members only, this is our second year opening up the exhibit to any interested staff member of Chapman University. The sixteen artists represented here demonstrate the wide variety of talent at our university. From photography to painting, ceramics to jewelry, the works you see here provide a unique opportunity to view and appreciate the diverse creative gifts of Chapman staff. For many of the artists this exhibit allows them the first opportunity to display their work publicly and has been an rewarding experience for them.
