On a two-year loan to the Library is a metal sculpture by former BMCC Art instructor, Bruce Guiwits (1939-2009).  The sculpture is called Black Tie and is installed in the seating area in the back of the library, nicely situated in front of floor-to-ceiling windows where it can be seen from outside the Library, too.
