Available: Hayden Library, Upper Concourse, Spring-Summer 2015, during normal library hours.

Description: This exhibit celebrates Joseph Haydn’s The Creation oratorio and is part of the ASU Creation Project, a yearlong series of events that concluded with a free performance of Haydn’s oratorio on April 29, 2015. The exhibit explores the nature of Creation through human imagination and creativity, as depicted in visual arts, music, cosmological narratives and diagrams, utopian writings, and scientific work. The exhibit is accompanied with a library guide, videos of pop-up books in action, 3D dioramas and high quality photos of fossil plants.
