  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

  • Angie Bray is something of a Renaissance woman with a wide range of artistic abilities and interests encouraged and enriched by her upbringing and her liberal arts education. She spent her childhood in the countryside outside Philadelphia where she attended a girls’ school that emphasized music, drama, and art in addition to academics. She studied at La Sorbonne in Paris and earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College in New York, followed by a Masters in Education from Harvard University in Massachusetts.

Finding Articles in Periodicals

In the Otis College Library periodicals (magazines, newspapers, journals) are not all found in the same place. The most recent issues of the periodicals are located in the special display racks straight ahead as you enter the library. Bound periodicals for back issues from 1990 to the present are shelved alphabetically by title on the shelves in the northwest corner of the library. Older bound periodicals are stored in the Annex and must be paged by the Circulation Staff. It will take a few minutes or hours to have the material brought to the Circulation Desk. For a list of Otis subscriptions, click here.

Full-Text Databases

A growing number of back issues of many periodicals are not kept by the library at all, but are still available to you in digital form through the Otis online subscription databases. In addition, there are a growing number of newspapers and magazines to which Otis has never subscribed, but are now available through full-text databases. Full-text articles may or may not include the images and graphs.

How to Locate Periodical Articles

There are several ways to locate periodical articles, but one way is to search periodical indexes. You must first find the citation information - title of magazine, date of publication, and page number. An abstract may be added to the citation. Reading the abstract will assist you in determining whether the article is worth retrieving.

Most are now available online in periodical databases. The Otis Library subscribes to many databases. Access to online databases is available from any computer on campus and from home through the Proxy Server. Your Xnumber and password are required for off-campus access.
