Living the Arts in the Libraries Events

Celebrate WMU students' and departments' work with "Living the Arts in the Libraries". A series of events in Waldo and Archives libraries, promoting greater cultural awareness across campus during the first 3 weeks of April. Whether you attend the popular Transference: Poetry in Translation, by World Languages and Literature - with the graduate woodwind quintet in the beautiful Meader Room; or, your senses may like a 60+ choir doing a pop-up concert, where the sound soars up all 3 floors of the Rotunda. But, don't be late, the pop-up is only 3 - 4 songs!

Poetry as dance or poetry posters - come let your senses absorb "Living the Arts in the Libraries."

Here is the schedule with updates on the Library events page:
