Icons Exhibit

We have a wonderful icon exhibit currently in the Marian Library's gallery, located on the seventh floor of Roesch Library.

The exhibit takes a rare look at a unique collection of original icons used for Christian devotion with some being 700-800 years old. We want to invite and highly encourage you to stop by and see it. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity and it is a small portion of a much larger private collection.  Please come in the next three weeks before it is gone on November 13.    

There is a guest book and we hope everyone will leave comments. The book will be given to George Contis, the owner of the collection, as a thank you for loaning us this display. The Marian Library gallery is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Thanks and please spread the word.
