The Countway Library sponsors exhibits and events in the Transit Gallery located in the Harvard Medical School. The Transit Gallery is located in Gordon Hall's lower level corridor.

Upcoming Exhibit:

Urban Ecology
Work by Silvia López Chavez

This body of work by Boston artist Silvia López Chavez explores the delicate balance of our human coexistence with its immediate natural land and water resources within the urban context. The pieces combine different mediums, starting from gelatin monoprints, layered with collage, watercolors, gouache, and sometimes color pencils, graphite and ink. The colorful re-imagined habitats of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems make reference to the evolutionary processes that keep them functioning as they also change and adapt in a complex environmental interaction of disturbance and resilience.

This exhibit will be on display in the Transit Gallery
