The Seeley G. Mudd Library supports and promotes the visual arts in a variety of mediums. As a place for learning and self-reflection, we believe the library is the perfect place to showcase the artistic products of our students as well as additional pieces to inspire, provoke thought, and commemorate. The Mudd Library houses a permanent collection, temporary installations, and the Mudd Gallery.
