Brief Description

This commission opportunity is for a large two-dimensional or shallow relief wall mounted artwork for a large wall in the main entrance area (approximately 26 feet tall x 20 feet wide). The community has a demonstrated interest in site-specific artwork that responds to the community’s clearly stated desire that the public art for their library be reflective of community diversity, as well as intellectual curiosity, creativity and a thirst for knowledge expressed in a visually sophisticated manner. While a variety of media will be considered, the community has expressed a desire for mosaic.
