Data Visualization: Contributions and Insights from the "Museum of Cognitive Art"

Beginning with the use of symbols and the first bar chart, there has been a long history of presenting data that would otherwise be incomprehensible. At the crossroads of science and art, the creative transformation of data has spurred visual story-telling with a tremendous return on investment. However, in the age of big data what are the ethical responsibilities of presenting data in a manner that is unbiased, accurate, accessible and honors the factual? This Data Visualization exhibit aims to explain.

This guest exhibit was curated by Zoraya Cruz-Bonilla and Kirsten Pagan from Student Affairs Assessment and Strategic Initiatives and can be viewed in the Glenn G. Bartle Lobby. It will be on display August 22, 2018 through May, 2019.




Reading Puerto Rico

Guest Curator: Sandra Casanova-Vizcaíno,Department of Romance Languages and Literatures

Beyond the images of sandy Caribbean beaches, tropical rainforests and exotic flora lies a country with a complex history and culture that still today remains virtually unknown to many in the continental U.S. Reading Puerto Rico exhibit highlighted the Libraries' collections on Puerto Rico and its diaspora. It featured materials that study the Caribbean island and U.S. territory’s modern socio-political history and the different views related to its current political status, as well as focusing on Puerto Rico’s art, music, literature, language and food and how these relate to the construction of multiple Puerto Rican cultural identities inside and outside of the island.
