Permanent Collection

Our Regards to Louise

Artists: This is a collaborative piece created by the clients of the Life Styles art program.  
Location: Level 4 Reading Room Entrance

Mixed media wall sculpture using found objects and placed in birch cradles. In Louise Nevelson fashion, we chose to paint it white, as we were coming out of the Covid pandemic and white represents a new beginning. Quoting Louise Nevelson: “white summoned the early morning and emotional promise.”

Voyage of Lost Keys

Artist: Aimée Papazian
Location: Level 2 Staircase

"Voyage of Lost Keys" is a way to imagine a mass migration – a way to think about people who have lost their homes and their place in the world as still being somehow connected to each other. 


Artist: Anita Huffington
Location: Level 4 Ellipse

"Undine" is a water spirit. This mixed media sculpture represents the power and mystery of water, as well as the myths and legends surrounding it.
