"It is with great pleasure we were able to recognize the RIT Libraries this year for the tremendous amount of work you have not only helped with for Student Government and our goals this year, but because you have worked so hard to provide great opportunities for the students.

Lecture this Friday, 4/24: The Oliphant Press: Tradition & Transformation

Please join the Cary Graphic Arts Collection as we host a talk by Ron Gordon, proprietor of the Oliphant Press. Gordon will describe his career as a printer and designer—a career that spanned the eras of letterpress, offset, and digital printing. Illustrating this history with examples of his own work, he will show how the craft has dramatically transformed over the decades.

Lecture starts at 5pm on Friday April 24th and is open to the public. Light refreshments to follow until 7 p.m. 

New RIT Museum exhibit: Resistance, Rebellion, and Renewal in Rochester

Resistance, Rebellion, and Renewal in Rochester: Narratives of Progress and Poverty examines more than one hundred years of Rochester’s history to illuminate the co-existence of wealth and progress with poverty and lack of opportunity. In at least three separate periods, 1913, 1964, and 2015, these circumstances have spurred action in the form of resistance, rebellion, and renewal – while altogether jeopardizing the social fabric of the city.
