    Spotlight: The Niche in the Fine Arts Library

    The Niche is a moving image exhibition project in the Fine Arts Library at the University of Virginia.

    A different video or animation work is featured each month in continuous loop on a sixty-inch monitor mounted in a highly-trafficked part of the library. There are two personal surround sound chairs for viewing as well as several pairs of wireless headphones. The project has been ongoing since 2009.
