In recognition of Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2018, the University Libraries will be holding an exhibit entitled The Art of the Remix, which illustrates what happens when artists remix existing work and make it their own. The exhibit will run from Monday, February 19th – Friday, March 30th on the first floor of Hunt Library. The Libraries is seeking student projects to include in the exhibit, where students have “remixed” copyrighted materials to create something new. This can be in the form of collage, graphics, computer art, or other media.

- 1-5 images (all images will be completely confidential)
