SAVE THE DATE: ARLIS/SC Fall 2011 Meeting

Please save Friday October 7 and Saturday October 8, 2011 for our annual meeting in La Jolla, CA.

We will be treated to a tour of the renovated Arts Library at UCSD (http://libraries.ucsd.edu/locations/arts/) and to the Stuart Collection of site specific artworks (http://stuartcollection.ucsd.edu/). UCSD will host our business meeting and presentations (watch for a call for papers coming soon!). The main meeting day will be Friday with additional tours (optional) scheduled on Saturday. I hope to work in visits to the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library (http://www.ljathenaeum.org/) and to the Museum of Contemporary Art (http://www.mcasd.org/), as well as a walking tour in downtown La Jolla in order to view some Irving Gill buildings (http://www.sandiegohistory.org/online_resources/gill.html).

Expect further details (housing, registration, etc.) early next month.

If you are in the San Diego/La Jolla area and want to help with logistics, please contact Janine Henri at jhenri at library dot ucla dot edu.
