Art in UK Libraries

The Lucille Little Fine Arts Library recently acquired five pieces of artwork, thanks to the generosity of Kathy and David Johnson who established a fund for these purchases.  Our collection emphasizes artists who are from Kentucky or have exhibited in the commonwealth.  With this recent acquisition, UK Libraries now has examples of work by two faculty members who taught in the Art Department for more than 20 years, Janis Sternbergs (1900-1981) Clifford Amyx (1909-1997).

We also have new work by Dobree Adams, whose mother, Hunter Adams (1912-1997), is the namesake of the Design Library.  Hunter Adams was the Architecture Librarian from 1962 until she retired in 1977.
