Miner Art Collection
2/27/2013 2:00 PM - 4/4/2013 5:00 PM
Bird Library, 3rd Floor (map)
An art gallery has been
added to the Bird Health Sciences Library due to the generosity of Provost
Andrews. The gallery, located on the 3rd floor near the Service Desk,
will display a different collection every 3-4 months.
The art currently on
display is provided by Dr. Philip Miner. Dr. Miner has a collection of
personal photographs that comprises The Miner Gallery, which benefits the
Oklahoma Foundation for Digestive Research, a private, non-profit medical
research foundation dedicated to advancing research in the evaluation of new
therapies and promising medications for digestive disorders.
Dr. Miner was the head of
the Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Kansas before being
recruited to the Oklahoma Foundation for Digestive Research in 1996. This
collection includes photographs from his travels throughout the United States,
Italy, Greece, France and Brazil, in addition to some special photographs of
the Oklahoma City National Memorial.
The collection will be
available all hours the Library is open through April 4th. We encourage
you to come by and see it in person!
If you have an idea for a
collection the Library could showcase, please let them know.
