Art Exhibitions Policy

This policy governs the use of the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library for rotating exhibitions of student artwork, as well as the virtual Biblio Gallery space. This gallery space will contribute to the campus cultural life by offering students a venue for exhibiting their creative work to a wider audience. 

Who may exhibit?

Syracuse University undergraduate and graduate students. All proposals must be submitted through the Biblio Gallery Submission Form.


The Librarian for Visual Arts is responsible for vetting art exhibition proposals.

Security and Liability

Bird Library will provide reasonable security measures for exhibitions. The Libraries accept no responsibility for damage to, or loss of, art pieces at any time while on display or while being transported to or from the Bird Library. The contributor must complete an Exhibit Release Form before the display is installed. Syracuse University does not provide insurance for student artwork on exhibition. If the artist wishes to insure artwork, it is the artist's responsibility to do so.

All artwork must be ready to display (i.e. mounted, framed, etc). Exhibitors will also be responsible for providing ready-to-mount labels and delivering the artwork to and from Bird Library. The exhibitor will be responsible for the hanging and arrangement of all materials in the gallery space.
