The continuing partnership between the Trenholm Artists Guild and the Music Library brings new art by surrealist painter Christopher Lane to the library’s walls and massive chalkboard. Religion, politics and human conflict are all important themes in Lane’s work, and he has long been inspired by artists Salvador Dali and Hieronymus Bosch. Shown here is Tara, one of Lane’s framed works on display at the Music Library through the end of the spring semester.
