"This could be an art project that would be a symbolic celebration of Rose's transformation." - Julie Newton

“It’s in the Cards: An Interactive Art Exhibit” features old library catalog cards that have been turned into art and poetry. The exhibit is curated by artist and Emory Libraries conservator Julie Newton, who was approached by the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library staff about making use of old catalog cards. Newton wants the exhibit to be composed of catalog cards that have been “transformed” by students, staff and faculty at Emory, as well as members of the Atlanta community. The exhibit will display the decorated cards in the original card catalog so visitors can open the drawers and look through other people’s transformed cards. Selected creations will also be scanned and enlarged for an online exhibition and reproduced with other submissions to create a quilt of catalog cards.
