Decker doesn't just lend materials on art. We exhibit them too.

Decker Library hosts exhibitions that typically rotate on a monthly basis. Decker staff curate exhibitions of items in our special collections and archives as well as items available for circulation.

MICA students, staff, and faculty can submit a proposal to curate library displays and exhibits. Use this form to submit a proposal. Questions? Contact Access Services at circ@mica.edu.



The Poster: Exploring Art, Design, and Information
Curated by Tannaz Motevalli

From transit to events and activism, the poster has been a staple for merging art, design, and information for the purpose of sending clear and thoughtful messages to its viewers. This exhibit of books from the Decker Library showcases the many uses, styles, and genres of posters found throughout a long history of graphic design, illustration, and drawing from across the world.
