Continuing a collaboration started by Professor Mel Ziegler, almost 15 years ago, the students in ARTS 1502: Installation Art worked with the Librarians of the Jean and Alexander Heard Library for their site specific installations art project in the Central Library.  Overthink | Understand opened on November 10, 2021 with student presentations explains their conceptual ideas behind their work. Installed on the different levels, the community is invited to explore the library and search for the nine installation projects.
