If you haven’t had a chance to swing by the William D. Walsh Family Library in the last couple of months, now is the time to head on up to the Rose Hill campus.
A selection of paintings, drawings, and sketches by the acclaimed pastel artist George Thompson, FCRH ’56, are on display for just one more week on the library’s main floor. They are a permanent part of the library’s special collection, but don’t often get shown as a group. Thompson has been called one of the 45 master pastelists in the world, and much of his work focuses on the Bronx, where he was born and raised, and on other urban spaces.
