I love the GALC collection! I have a young daughter and I get to introduce her to art easily and affordably through this program.
By Joshua Dullaghan
For the 2017-18 academic year, I kept the graphic art print “Apollo” in my office. It became a wonderful talking point with students, faculty, and staff. I look forward to next year and can’t wait to see what piece might adorn my office for 2018-19. I greatly appreciate the Morrison Library for providing this opportunity.
Living with art was beautiful and exciting. It is very easy to get caught up with the trivial business of life and studenthood and to lose sight of the images and ideas that guide and impel us. When the art that moves you lives with you, it is centering and purpose-injecting.
By Andrew Stevens
I borrowed artwork from the GALC every year during my time at Berkeley as a graduate student. The GALC helped me realize that “Art” – curated, original, unique art – is something that can be accessible and engaged with on a personal level. One ought not believe that “Art” is only for museums or the wealthy. Indeed, I have now decided to try and buy original art from emerging artists to decorate my home rather than purchase mass-produced plastic canvases from big-box stores. The GALC had a large role in shaping my views on how one can choose to engage with art.
By Nick Pingitore
The GALC is something unique to Cal. Although it is a relatively small part of a massive university, it is one of the many things that collectively make it the amazing place it is. It’s simply amazing that anyone with a student ID can check out artwork of almost any subject and bring a little piece of Cal back into their dorm room or apartment for the year. I love it!

I came to work on the UC Berkeley campus in 1999 as the first Associate Director of the Consortium for the Arts, which later became the Arts Research Center. Since it was my job to be aware of all the arts resources on campus, naturally I learned about the Graphic Arts Loan Collection. I was thrilled to be able to check out works of art and hang them in my office for an entire semester! I borrowed quite a few different pieces over the years, including “Dark Day in the Abundant Blue Light of Paris” by Mary Lovelace O’Neal (now a Professor Emeritus), who at the time was Chair of the Department of Art Practice. This print is beautiful, moody and mysterious. Looking at her artwork every day was a great reminder that many of the faculty with whom I worked regularly in an administrative capacity–sitting in meetings, trading emails, organizing panel discussions–were also practicing artists, anxious to escape the university bureaucracy and pursue their creative visions. Looking away from my computer screen and gazing at an imaginative work of art was a great way for me to refresh myself, gain some distance on the daily grind, and re-focus on the most important priorities.
