[dropcap sid=”dropcap-1446751420″]T[/dropcap]he College’s nationally recognized, award-winning William and Anita Newman Library is a student resource and oasis. And since 2013, it has offered a new, thought-provoking dimension: four attention-grabbing mini–exhibition spaces collectively known as the New Media Artspaces.

Occupying renovated pay-phone booths and curated by Baruch’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts, these alcoves provide a mixed media–capable setting for experimental artworks that incorporate video, animation, sculpture, and photography.

Among the most popular exhibitions was Missed Connections, which ran from May through September 2015 and showcased new works by eight Baruch undergraduates. The students—all completing the requirements for a fine and performing arts minor—created artworks addressing how individuals interact with, change, and are changed by their surroundings.

Popular with library-goers, the New Media Artspaces raise the profile of the arts at Baruch.
