The Georgia Tech Library Artist-in-Residence program exists to enhance and expand the current educational experience through arts-based programming as it relates to STEM fields and Georgia Tech areas of study. A visiting artist will engage the Georgia Tech community in an artistic and aesthetic exploration of the role of the libraries in society, the Artist-in-Residence program supports the mission of the Library through arts-based programming and engagement as a core responsibility of the artist-in-residence.
Deanna Sirlin was the 2022 Library Artist-in-Residence. Her piece (pictured), Watermark, is on display on the ground floor of Crosland Tower. Watermark addresses the most important issue of the 21st century-- climate change-- through color, transparency and composition, and it is influenced by the exhibition ‘50 Years of Science Fiction at Georgia Tech’.
