About Visiting Artists Program

We welcome artists to share their craft with the community while activating library spaces for personal projects. Selected artists will lead four or more public events – at least one per month. The offered events will include workshops/programs for youth, teens and adults along with a public presentation appropriate to the artist’s focus.   
Three artists will be selected each year for a four-month program cycle: 
      → January – April 
      → May – August 
      → September – December
