Textures of Campus
September - December 2005
campus has a number of architectural features, memorials, or class gifts
which often go unnoticed though they may be seen regularly.
Within this exhibit
we invite you to take a look at a few of the WOU campus details which
are mostly overlooked or hidden in parts of the campus you may not often
visit. The textures of a campus, much like the textures of our clothing
