USA Library Showcases Art Collections

The University of South Alabama Library is featuring several art exhibits through the month of August in the main library’s third floor gallery.

The Alabama Dirt Project features pictures made by students from Baldwin County schools. The show was installed by Nancy Raia, project director of the Eastern Shore Art Center, and features the work of students from Daphne High School, Fairhope High School, Fairhope Middle School, and Fairhope Elementary School.

The project was funded by private donations as well as by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, Mobile Arts Council, the City of Fairhope, Community Foundation of South Alabama, and the Louis Mapp Family Foundation.

In addition, the works of Herbert “Mannie” Pair are on display. Pair is a USA graduate and owner of The Victorian Teal Art Gallery in Mobile. Kaleidoscope: An Exhibition of Works by Linda Hall, another local artist, will also continue in the library’s third floor gallery through August.

These shows are free and open to the public. For library hours or more information, please visit the USA Library Web site at
