Do you enjoy painting, sketching, or taking photos? Come share your artistic side and participate in Himmelfarb Library's Art Show! Himmelfarb's annual Art Show has been a proud tradition for over 30 years, when each spring semester the first floor of the library is transformed into an art gallery displaying the works of our community.

We invite the faculty, students, and staff of SMHS, GWSPH, SON, and GW Hospital to submit their art. We accept everything from paintings to sculptures to textiles to woodworking, and anything in between! Each artist is invited to submit up to five works.
