Tactile Encounters: the Influence and Appearance of Texture is a new art exhibit in Galvin Library’s Kemper Room, located on the upper level.  Opening October 4, 2012, the IIT student organization Small Room Curators has brought together artists from FUSEDChicago, a midwest group that works in the encaustic arts.  Encaustic is from the Greek language (to heat or burn) and found in their ancient culture.  Each piece is created using colored wax that is fused to a surface by heat, and each layer is applied, then heated to fuse it to the previous layer.  More than 20 artists have contributed pieces to the show for a wide variety of color and style.  The show will run through November 16, 2012.
