One might think that a library is a place for books and studying alone, but at Oberlin’s Mudd Center library this is not the case. Capitalizing on the large amount of activity and open space on the ground level of the library, staff, professors, and students alike take the opportunity to showcase work and objects of interest.
This spring, the exhibition An Exercise in Freedom: The Mail Art of Edgardo Antonio Vigo appeared for curious eyes and those in need of a study break to examine. Curated by art librarian Barbara Prior and drawn from the art library’s collection of more than 25,000 pieces of mail art, the exhibit highlights Argentinian artist Edgardo Antonio Vigo, a pioneer of the mail art movement that involved sending small-scale artworks through the postal service.
