Hello, local artists! The library's art spaces strive to be:
- A showcase for local artists — from novice to professional — living in Lawrence or Douglas County
- A place for diversity of opinion, voice, and perspective
- A place that generates conversation
- A place that reflects our community as a whole
- A place that inspires us to learn, connect, create, and grow
Locations. We have four areas available for individual or group exhibitions:
- Self-Check Lobby Wall / 1-month duration
- West Interior Wall / duration is negotiable
- Concrete Fins / duration is negotiable
- Atrium (free-standing or 3D work) / duration is negotiable
