Sculptures by James Dixon on exhibit

November 5, 2017 by

Sculptor James Dixon will present his work in the Dayton Memorial Library through November. The exhibit is in the DML fireplace lounge and the Doyle and Margaret Hartman Gallery.

As a visual artist, James Dixon has used his cultural experience and knowledge to achieve universality rather than create a barrier to mainstream culture. Because his work is not bound by ethnic stereotypes, his audience is able to appreciate his art as an expression that unites rather than divides diverse communities and interests. In this way, Dixon is a global citizen whose work becomes a crossroads of exploration into the ever-expanding realm of worldwide artistic creation.

Dixon’s bronze sculptures are also currently on display at Art of Life Gallery, located in Denver, Colorado, and Shidoni Foundry and Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

History of Inequity reading list

October 24, 2017 by

The Dayton Memorial Library celebrates the diversity represented in our Regis community and seeks to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome. In October the library observes Hispanic Heritage Month, LGBTQ History Month, and Disability Awareness Month. We take the opportunity during this month to announce the launching of our reading list on the History of Inequity. This reading list has been curated by the librarians at Dayton Memorial Library as a selection of materials addressing issues relating to diversity, inclusion, inequity, and oppression from across disciplines and decades. Most of these resources are written from a scholarly/academic perspective, and many of these items are intersectional in nature and will fall within more than one category listed here.

The Popular Vote…Loses

October 10, 2017 by

“The Popular Vote…Loses” is a new exhibit on the end shelves of the Notarianni Political Collection, 4th floor, Dayton Memorial Library.

Five presidential candidates have won the popular vote of the people, and yet lost the election: Andrew Jackson, 1824; Samuel Tilden, 1876; Grover Cleveland, 1888; Al Gore, 2000; and Hillary Clinton, 2016. They lost the election because they got fewer votes in the Electoral College. This exhibit displays some of the campaign items of the losers, as well as those of their victorious opponents.
