Set Sail

Ebling Library plays host this semester to two complementary exhibitions, one featuring the allure of deep-ocean wilderness, the other, a history of maritime health and medicine.

"Beyond the Edge of the Sea", a traveling exhibit from the Muscarelle Museum of Art, features original watercolors that brilliantly capture the deep-ocean diversity observed by those who have descended in the Alvin Submersible.

"Seaworthy" examines a variety of topics in maritime health--from the use of horseshoe crabs to the diagnosis and treatments for scurvy, among other maladies. The materials that comprise this exhibit have been drawn from campus library collections.

A special reception with oceanographer, Dr. Cindy Lee Van Dover, artist, Karen Jacobsen and exhibits curator, Micaela Sullivan-Fowler will be held on Friday, November 11, 2011 (3:00-6:00 PM) in Ebling’s Third Floor Gallery.

Free and open to the public, these exhibitions will run until January 31, 2012 (inaugurated September 28, 2011) in the Historical Reading Room and Third Floor Gallery, Ebling Library (Health Sciences Learning Center).
