The University of West Georgia is bringing new meaning to the art of music. Ingram Library is hosting an exhibition showcasing the 2012 Paul Revere Award winners, a group chosen as outstanding examples of graphic design in the music industry. The library will display the exhibit Feb. 4 – 23, 2013, in the Thomas B. Murphy Reading Room on the ground floor.

In celebration of the exhibit, Ingram Library is sponsoring a concert on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, in the Murphy Reading Room, followed by a reception in the main lobby. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature UWG music faculty as well as current and former students, alumni and members of the community. Pianist Bernie Wong will perform a piece that is displayed in the exhibit called “12 Spanish Dances” by Enrique Granados. The exhibit and concert are free and open to the public.

“This is the only exhibition of the 2012 Paul Revere Award winners in the state of Georgia, so I am pleased that Ingram Library will be hosting them” said Shelley Smith, senior cataloger at Ingram Library. The University of West Georgia is part of the exhibit’s national tour that includes stops in Illinois, Colorado and New York.
