Soleia Quinn Mother OceanPortraits of Everywoman: Soleia Yemaya Quinn

Clark Library Covert Gallery Exhibit, March - May 2023

Visit the Dr. James T. Covert Gallery on the main floor of the library for a stunning show of artwork by Soleia Yemaya Quinn, UP junior majoring in English and Psychology with a minor in Fine Arts. The show is animated by the idea of womanhood – what it means to be a girl, a woman, a mother, a daughter, a lover, and a friend. Inspired by the people in her life, Soleia uses motifs of nature, classical art, and symmetry to create surreal pieces reflecting the themes of feminism, family, spirituality, and death. Can't make it in person? Check out the digital exhibit.

Clark Library Covert Gallery Exhibit, August - October 2022

Built in 1891, this stalwart building started life on The Bluff as West Hall. After an extensive remodel in 1992, it was renamed Waldschmidt Hall in honor of the University’s 15th president, Bishop Paul Waldschmidt, C.S.C. As the University’s longest-serving building, Waldschmidt Hall has welcomed all University presidents from the first, Rev. E.P. Murphy who rang the opening bell on September 5, 1901, to the University’s 21st president, Dr. Robert Kelly. Happy 30th birthday, Waldschmidt Hall!
