Editor's Note:  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 can bring tears.  It provides a respite, however brief, from the task at hand.  Art works to inspire our inner artists, encouraging the advancement of our own works of art--whatever those may be.  It raises our quality of life.  Art makes us feel good.

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

Because art works.

Marie Delleney's untitled oil in autumn hues, left, is just one of many pieces on display in the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus of TWU.  Delleney was a faculty member of Texas State College for Women (now Texas Woman's University) from 1929 to 1964.  See this work near the Browsing Collection on the library's first floor and enjoy works in a variety of mediums displayed on the library's four levels whenever the building is open (a friendly reminder--a current TWU ID card is required for entrance after 9 p.m.)

For assistance, please visit the Information Desk (on the right as you enter the building).
