Artists & Displays

Monthly Artists & Displays

Stop by the libraries every month to see changing displays featuring beautiful works of art and interesting collections, artifacts, or memorabilia--all contributed by the creative, talented people that live right alongside you in your community.


August 2014:

Do you have an interesting collection to share?

We're always looking for community members who wish to share their talents at the library each month. 

Displays provide exposure to the work of artisans and artists, or provide information on subjects of general interest to the public. The display cases are secured. For more information call your local branch or contact us.

Central Ridge Branch

Display: Legos!

David Androski, Jacob Gabb, Jameson Falls, Carlie Pearcy, Hannah Gabb, Jeremy Falls, Blake Daehnick, Garrett Pearcy, and Aidan Pearcy

Legos certainly have stood the test of time. Most people are familiar with these plastic building blocks that can be arranged in infinite combinations to create an unlimited number of creations. These young people have really put their creative muscles to the test creating works of art with tiny bricks. There are powerful vehicles, monstrous creatures, colorful ninjas, and much more. Each case contains something just a little different than the one before. Seeing these fun arrangements might tempt you to find some Legos yourself and express your inner engineer or artist!
