VERMILLION, S.D. -- A campus reception for artists currently on display in “Corroborations 2012” at the University Libraries is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 20 on the second floor of I.D. Weeks Library.

“Corroborations 2012” artists will read poetry and discuss the process of creating work for the exhibit.  All exhibits are currently on display until May 4.

All work created for the exhibition is new and original, and includes South Dakota tapestry artist Grete Bodøgaard; “Getting Graphic,” an exhibit of graphic novels by librarian Abby Moore; and “SkateCreate,” a student exhibit featured on the west side of the second floor.
