Special Collections

McDaniel College Hoover Library Student Art Collection

McDaniel College Hoover Library Student Art Collection

The Student Art Collection was initiated in 2011 by Hoover Library Director Jessame Ferguson. Each year, the Library purchases one piece of artwork by a McDaniel College senior Art major to be displayed in the Library.

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.
