Juried Art Exhibit 2023

The Juried Art Exhibit is on display until Nov. 15 at the City Centre branch. Drop in any time during Library hours to view an exclusive collection of curated local art.

Juried Art Exhibit (2)

Our exhibition explores how art can contribute to a more just and sustainable society through the themes of inclusivity and sustainability. By bringing together diverse artworks that embody these principles, the Juried Art Exhibition inspires dialogue and understanding of the important role that art can play in addressing pressing social and environmental issues.

Call for entries is now closed. Thank you to everyone submitted work. Successful artists were contacted by library staff in September. Submission Information »
