New Exhibit: Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Hey, blog readers! Sorry for my staggering appearances during the last couple of weeks. It has been rather busy here at the Center. Fans probably already know, but Arthur Jaffe's 90th birthday was Saturday, May 7th, & he's retiring, too, so we threw a big party this weekend in his honor. We also asked artists from the collection to donate books for the celebration. We received many great items & we placed them on display along with some of Arthur's favorite items from the collection. The Time Flies When You're Having Fun exhibit will be on display all summer long throughout the whole library.

Also, you can celebrate Arthur's birthday & retirement by coming to the Time Flies Open House on Saturday May 21st. From 1PM to 4PM, you can chat with Arthur with a side of cookies & coffee, create a print with our Vandercook Printing Press, & receive one-of-a-kind poetry from the Miami Poetry Collective. Members of the Collective will be scattered across the Center so you can buy a poem (name your own price) based on a topic or theme of your recommendation. While you're here, you can look at the Time Flies When You're Having Fun exhibit & the Stories on the Skin: The Photos exhibit on the first floor, west wing of the library. No need to RSVP; just come, have fun, & leave with some cool pieces.
