Special Collections Exhibitions ‌

The following exhibits are free and open to the public during regular business hours.

"The Alice Project"
Location: KSL Art Gallery (1st floor) and throughout the library

Last year, students of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Illustration Department were inspired by a local book collector's exceptional collection of illustrated Lewis Carroll books. The resulting project was a book, Alice, which contains new illustrations to Lewis Carroll’s works by the students. Prints of the students’ work are displayed in the gallery, and additional student works can be found on display throughout the library.
