WKU Library Virtual Art Gallery

On September 4, 1992 the Western Kentucky University Libraries established the University Libraries Fine Arts Committee. This committee was charged with the task of recommending, every two years, purchases of original works of art from Western Kentucky University faculty and students. These works are displayed throughout the Helm-Cravens Library. Since the formation of this committee, the Library has purchased many works of art in the fields of fiber, sculpture, ceramics, and painting.

This site is a virtual gallery of the display of a sample of the art pieces. Use the left-hand side menu to navigate through the gallery.
