365 Things

365 Things is the participatory launch project of The Object Library, inviting all-comers to contribute one thing no bigger than your head. Beginning empty, we ask the Graduate Center community and friends to make this first exhibit together in our inaugural Bring-a-Thing-a-Thon event through October 16-17. Our launch takes place in the middle of this two-day event.

Logo 161 by Richard Woods Studio

This commissioned block-printed installation takes as its starting point the wood pattern of the original B. Altman & Co. department store floor, a section of which can be found in the common room running immediately behind the library reception area. Logo 161 is a work of renovation that also asks what we are looking for when we resurface our environment. What kind of library might be most conducive to public study?
