Library Exhibits & Displays

Exhibits and Displays at the Gladys Marcus Library showcase the library's visual, intellectual, and artistic resources for the benefit of the FIT community. We invite students, faculty, and staff to partner with us to create thoughtful, creative, and intellectually stimulating exhibitions consistent with the College's educational philosophy and ideals. Exhibits and displays are located on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors of the Library.
