Sarah Grimes wins the Lang Prize

Congratulations to Sarah Grimes (art history and design double-major) who is among the winners of this year’s Norma J. Lang Prize for Undergraduate Research. Her paper “Music and Movements: Psychedelic Rock Posters and the Counterculture” was written for Professor James Housefield’s AHI 190H course (winter ’22) “The Art of Chance: Chance in Art from Marcel Duchamp and John Cage to Fluxus.” Grimes analyzed the interaction of form and content in artworks from the library’s counter culture poster collection,  emphasizing target audiences for the posters’ distinct designs. Inspired by these works from the library’s special collections she interviewed renowned creator Stanley Mouse to better understand the posters in their original context.

The Lang Prize for Undergraduate Information Research recognizes students who make exceptional use of library resources and services — such as primary source materials and special collections, online databases and journal articles, interlibrary loan services, or consulting with a librarian.
