Brief Description

The Frisco Public Library has operated out of a 50,000 square foot space at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center since 2006. As Frisco continues to grow rapidly, more space is needed to provide expanded programming and collection resources to residents. A building at Cotton Gin Road and the Dallas North Tollway has been identified for adaptive reuse.

Artwork design for this project must be appropriate to a library of the moment and must integrate well with the building design. As this library will be a model for others to follow, the artwork should be innovative. Artists are encouraged to design imaginatively and create thought provoking art for learners of all ages. Artworks traditionally found in libraries such as realistic and/or sentimental depictions of readers or books are discouraged.
