This week on Artworks,
Indiana University’s Lilly Library is celebrating 50 years in 2010. We’re off to explore that gem of the IU-Bloomington campus, where rare books are anything but hands-off, and where you bound to discover something unexpected.
As part of the tour we’ll find out how nearly 30,000 puzzles made their way from California to the Lilly with the Curator of Puzzles, Jillian Hinchliffe .
And, we’ll explore the American obsession with the automobile at an exhibition the Lilly held last summer. Artworks’ David Brent Johnson visited the “Are We There Yet” and took a look at the catalogues that had early car enthusiasts drooling.
Come along with us as we toast half a century at IU’s Lilly Library, this week on Artworks.
