The Fine Arts Library was the first library in the country to host the Artstream Ceramic Cup Library.

The collection contains 40 cups from 13 nationally known potters, and all the cups could be checked out for a week by current UT faculty, students, and staff.

We had a reception for the exhibition on Friday, March 4, and Lisa Orr, a local potter and Artstream participant, spoke about the Artstream project. Additionally, Lisa and local potter, Ryan McKerley gave a ceramics demonstration on Monday, March 7th in the Ceramics Studio in the ART Building, room 2.410.

Karen Holt blogged about the exhibition happenings on the Artstream blog, and the cups were on display until March 31st.

We had a total of 50 cup checkouts by 38 patrons.
