The place to be was all around the BSC Library for today’s ArtsQuest Campus Crawl. Raku was being fired west of the library from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., students unveiled the latest Figments of Imagination literary journal and did a reading over the noon hour on the library courtyard, and the ever-popular tie-dye event took place from noon to 3 p.m. between the Library and Werner Hall.
Here are some snapshots taken by Reference Librarian Johanna Bjork. Enjoy!
