The Libraries of the University of Texas at Arlington are pleased to host the ninth annual UTA Celebration of Faculty Creative Works. This event showcases the art, books, juried exhibits, music, media, patents, conference presentations, and journal contributions of UTA faculty in 2016. The Libraries initiated this event to shine a spotlight on the impressive depth and breadth of scholarship and creativity produced by UTA faculty. Here, for example, is an art piece by UTA Department of Art + Art History faculty member Kenda North.
These scholars are achieving unprecedented excellence in research, teaching, and community engagement. Each year the number of scholars we honor grows. This year we have a 25% increase in faculty scholarly citations and have grown to represent over 400 faculty. We congratulate the colleagues represented in these pages and on the Faculty Creative Works website. Their work epitomizes the high standards of excellence and the growth of research activity at UTA. We hope that all faculty will join us for a celebratory champagne reception on April 18, 2017, on the 6th floor of the Central Library from 4-6 p.m. RSVP here by April 11.
