Exhibits in the Marian Library are a tradition of studying and sharing Marian art, books, archival and devotional material.

The Marian Library enriches campus intellectual life and aesthetics through exhibits that can both be used as instructional tools in the classroom as well as foster the joy of discovering Mary's person and beauty. 

Since 1988, the Marian Library has curated exhibits featuring items from its expansive permanent collections and showcased the work of over 125 contemporary artists. 

Exhibits are curated to highlight aspects of our collections and immerse visitors in the past, present and future of Marian art, artifacts and realia. They intended not only to display items, but to use those items to inform and inspire.
