About Us

The Marx Library is home to the Mary Elizabeth and Charles Bernard Rodning Gallery of Art, Gallery Hall, Gallery 181 and other smaller spaces within the building. The bright open areas in the library provide ample wall space and display cases to exhibit wall art, jewelry, crafts, small works of art, sculpture and other artistic mediums.
