The main stairwell is looking a little brighter in Musselman Library with the arrival of the Colors of Singapore photography exhibition. During the summer, Joseph Miller '13, Falon Deimler '13 and Alice Wolfkill '12 accompanied Professor VoonChin Phua on a research trip to Singapore. Their photographs, inspired by the country's vibrant colors and culture, are on display in the Library stairwell. 

Falon Deimler '13 writes, "One of the four 'Asian Tigers' or economic strongholds of Asia, Singapore is a young and highly modernized island nation. Its citizens are proud of the country's economic successes and enjoy all of the benefits of its innovative, competitive, and sophisticated society. Despite Singapore's emergence as an economic power, it maintains an unmistakably vibrant character through the fusion of its modernism with the rich cultural heritage of its people. This exhibit aims to demonstrate the 'Colors of Singapore,' of its architecture as well as its people, in order to capture and share the brilliance of a venture through the nation's most frequented tourist attractions, as well as its captivating local sights."

The Colors of Singapore exhibition will run through December 16, 2011 in the Musselman Library main stairwell.
