See the 49 Wonderland Award Entries and Congratulate the Winners at April 17 Reception
Students from USC and other eligible universities have submitted 49 entries in the Tenth-Annual USC Libraries Wonderland Award competition. We will announce the winners at an award reception this Thursday, April 17. Join us in the Friends of the USC Libraries Lecture Hall (DML 240) at 7:00 p.m. to browse through the imaginative submissions and congratulate the winners. Then stay for Wonderland Unbound, a massive multimedia installation that will transform the facade of Doheny Library through the art of projection mapping and digital animation.

The Wonderland Award is an annual multidisciplinary competition showcasing the creative and interpretive skills of students from USC and other participating institutions as they draw inspiration for new creative works from the G. Edward Cassady, M.D., and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N., Lewis Carroll Collection. The contest is made possible through a generous gift by Linda Cassady, who created the award in 2005 to promote the collection of books, recordings, academic papers, and other items related to the nineteenth-century author and polymath Lewis Carroll.
