Join us on Thursday, Oct. 19 in Falvey Library’s Speakers’ Corner from 4:30-6:30 p.m. for an exhibit reception featuring historic & noteworthy bibles from Villanova’s Distinctive Collections. The reception will begin with a moderated panel discussion with faculty and collections professionals on the topic of biblical imagery, followed by a live print demonstration with Mike Sgier using linoleum relief blocks that recreate biblical illustrations to highlight historical methods of reproduction from the exhibit. Attendees are invited to participate in the panel Q&A as well as interact with the exhibit content by taking home prints from the demonstration. Themed refreshments and snacks will be provided.
