DESCRIPTION

The USC Libraries present The Story of Everything, an exhibition of original artwork by Southern California artists Victor Raphael and Clayton Spada. The artists explore the intersections of astronomy, Kabbalism, evolution, geometry, and countless other subjects. Like latter-day alchemists, they transmute a diverse selection of visual materials into rich, multilayered perspectives on the nature of the universe.

Complementing Raphael and Spada's digital artworks, the libraries present Notes from the Story of Everything, an exhibition of rare books and other materials from our special collections that partly inspired their creative journey. These items continue the artists' explorations of eternal questions—creation and destruction, harmony and strife, infinity and void—that define our existence.

The opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, September 3 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. It features remarks by Dean Catherine Quinlan of the USC Libraries and artists Victor Raphael and Clayton Spada. RSVP at www.usc.edu/esvp (code: ARTSCIENCE).
