McDaniel College Hoover Library Student Art Collection

The Student Art Collection includes works of art created by Western Maryland College and McDaniel College students and acquired by Hoover Library for the purpose of display. Beginning in 2011, Hoover Library started purchasing one piece of artwork from a senior art major to add to the collection.

The Collection not only beautifies the Library, but celebrates the academic and artistic endeavors of the College's students, reflecting diverse artistic disciplines and points of view. It also provides an opportunity to inspire and educate Library patrons through a unique cultural experience.
