Founders Day Exhibit

Celebrating Music at OHIO

Welcome to the digital companion of Alden Library's exhibit entitled Celebrating Music at OHIO. The content of these pages serve as supplemental information about the physical items that were displayed in the exhibit. So for example, we have a collection performances by Ohio University bands, links to items that can be found in our collections, and even pictures of Alden staff who are musical performers. If you have any questions about the content of these pages, feel free to reach out to Chris Guder and he will put you in touch with someone who can assist you.

The image and key below were created by Heaven Herrold, Library Support Specialist in User Services. The image is made up of musicians who have been to Ohio University. A much larger version of this image was hung on the wall on fifth floor of Alden Library as part of the exhibit. Take a peak and see how many people you can identify.

Image created in the style of the Beatles Sgt. Pepper album, filled with pictures of musicians who have performed at Ohio University
