Art Works: The Little Chapel

The Little Chapel at the Library  Little Chapel, Oil by R. Carter.  1979.  The Little Chapel is on display behind 
the Information Desk on the first floor of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.  Photograph by Kristin 
Wolski.  November 5, 2014.
Editor's Note:  Today's post is part of a series on the artwork on display in the TWU Libraries.  You may also enjoy Art Works: Out of the Blue and Art Works: Family Preserve.  

Art works to awaken the senses.  It fuels the imagination, encourages creativity, and clears the mind.  It relaxes us.  It can make us laugh. It provides a respite, however brief, from our tasks.  Art works to inspire our inner artists, helping us to improve our own works of art--whatever forms those may take.  It raises our quality of life.  Art just makes us feel good.

Between classes, between projects, between chapters--whenever the impulse strikes--look up and take in some of the creative works around you, including those at the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus of TWU.  Because art works.

As the Little Chapel in the Woods turns 75 we thought we would share one of the many images of the chapel on the walls and in the collections of the TWU Libraries.  

Photographs of the chapel under construction, and its artwork in progress, can be found in the University Archives Digital Archive.  For assistance with the University Archives or other special collections please contact the Woman's Collection of the TWU Libraries at 940-898-3751, or Ask an Archivist.   

To see photographs taken at a reception at the Blagg-Huey Library celebrating the chapel's milestone anniversary, see the TWU Libraries' flickr page.

Finally, an exhibit of wedding gowns, memorabilia, books, artwork, photographs and ephemera related to every Pioneer's favorite little chapel is on display in the first-floor lobby of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.  Curated by Woman's Collection staff members, Celebrating 75 Years: The Little Chapel-in-the-Woods will be available for viewing during regular library hours through November, 2014.
