On loan from the Libraries collections: one uniquely special “Human of Binghamton”

“When I was in college, I suddenly wanted to go to Russia more than anything else in the world. I started to learn Russian on my own and went to Russia in the summer of 1983, immediately falling in love with the country and the people. It is a fabulous, beautiful place and I would recommend a visit there to anyone.” #‎HumansofBinghamton‬

University’s “Humans of Binghamton” features one of our own!

“I spend a lot of my spare time making art — anything colorful, whimsical or happy. Art is a great way to get other people to smile. If someone looks at something I made and can smile, I feel like I’ve done my job. I trade most of my art, so I have works of art from people all over the world, everywhere from Malaysia to France.”
