Announcing the TWC Moments Contest!

Why do you love The Wallace Center? Have you pulled an all-nighter at TWC? Have one of our staff members or librarians helped you out in a pinch? Had your artwork photographed by RIT photo? Perhaps TWC is a warm refuge on these bitter cold days. We want to hear from you! 

Frederic W. Goudy exhibition: Opening reception March 12th

This exhibition celebrates the sesquicentennial of the birth of Frederic W. Goudy. In 1963 Professor Alexander Lawson acquired a landmark collection of books, prints, and metal type made by Goudy. This was the first archival typographic collection housed at RIT. It was a significant precursor to the 1969 donation of Melbert B. Cary Jr.’s typographic library—a complementary union of materials not only for their content, but also because Goudy and Cary were colleagues.
Opening Reception and Lecture: March 12, 2015, 5 p.m.

Rice Bucket Challenge a huge success!

Last semester The Wallace Center sponsored a Rice Bucket Challenge to collect bags of rice for the Rochester community. Ultimately more than 1,020lbs of rice were donated to Foodlink. Thank you to all who contributed both time and money to this wonderfully successful project!
