On November 6, 2009, the School of Library and Information Studies hosted its annual Alumni Day, and as part of the festivities there was a reception for a new exhibition. On the fifth floor of Amelia Gorgas Library the work entitled Luciferous Logolepsy are on display alongside a striking sculpture of Bill Gates. The exhibition features hundreds of letterpress printed obscure words, hung from the ceiling as a way of giving readers exposure to these hidden dictionary jewels. The Bill Gates sculpture is complex assembly of different materials, each with it’s own message. Friends joined artists Kathleen Fetters, Glenn House Sr., and sculptor Jim Slowe to celebrate the work. (l-r) Kerri Harding and Mary McManus.
