Photo Friday: Art of War

Image of Falvey Library's latest exhibit, Art of War: Illustrated and Military Maps of the Twentieth Century on display in the library's first floor.


Falvey Library’s latest exhibit, Art of War: Illustrated and Military Maps of the Twentieth Century, is now on display on the library’s first floor and in select cases at the Prince Family Veterans Resource Center. “Both locations feature a selection of two types of imagery: maps that are illustrated, highly pictorial, and created for public distribution; and topographic maps that have been created by government war offices for use in military conflict.” Read more about the exhibit here.

The exhibit was co-curated by Rebecca Oviedo, Distinctive Collections Archivist, and Christoforos Sassaris, Distinctive Collections Coordinator, with graphics created by Joanne Quinn, Director of Communication and Marketing.

Thank you to Artist Yunuen Cho, who featured Falvey Memorial Library’s blog “Cat in the Stax: Appreciating Hispanic Visual Arts,” on her Instagram and website. The blog, published on Sept. 15, 2021, by Ethan Shea, graduate assistant at Falvey Memorial Library, highlighted two of Cho’s paintings, “Food City” and “Cow Community” (both pictured above). To learn more about Cho’s work and to explore more Hispanic visual artists, check out Shea’s blog here.

During the spring semester move-out in May, recycling bins were provided by the Villanova Recycling Office with plans for “collecting, sorting, and donating to local charities all usable items left behind by the students.”

In all, Villanova students donated over 500 pounds of books that were then delivered to Falvey Memorial Library on June 14.

Renee Boyd-Shaw and three students from the Center for Access, Success, and Achievement (CASA)—pictured above—sorted through the donations for CASA’s Lending Library. The small library of books and textbooks are accessible for CASA students to checkout for the semester.

According to the department’s website, “The Lending Library has proven to be a valuable resource to help defray the costs of instructional materials that students may need for class.” More than 80 percent of the recycled books were added to CASA’s Lending Library. The other 20 percent were added to Falvey Library’s collection or donated to Better World Books for resale.

Thank you to all the students who recycled their books for future Villanovans!
