Home: Contemporary Indigenous Artists Responding

October 1, 2018

This exhibit gathers the work of 12 Indigenous artists working in printmaking, who each adopt a unique perspective from which to consider the ideas of community, place and belonging. Organized by Melanie Yazzie, professor of art at the University of Colorado at Boulder, this exhibition demonstrates an Indigenous relationship to home and homeland, enmeshed in a history of defense, sacrifice, resiliency and redefinition

The exhibit will be showing in the Fireplace Lounge of Dayton Memorial Library through Oct. 30. A reception and gallery talk by Melanie Yazzie will take place on Oct. 11 at 4:30 p.m.

DML roofing project begins Feb. 12th

February 8, 2018

Due to the hail storm last May, the University has authorized a re-roofing project for the Dayton Memorial Library including the removal of the existing roof and the re-installation of new roofing materials. Beginning on February 12, roofers will start the process that is expected to take about three weeks to complete. It’s possible that weather could delay the project.

There will be sidewalk closures immediately adjacent and directly south of the building, however the building’s rear entrance will remain open during most of the construction process. There may be possible temporary closure of the south entrance; we will post more updates as the project progresses.
