Boulder Junction Public Library “Art in the Library” Exhibit
The Boulder Junction Public Library welcomes the public to view their “Art in the Library” exhibit. The selected artwork will be on display in the library now through June 30, 2015 during regular library hours.
The Boulder Junction Public Library Art Committee and Board of Trustees selected fiber artist, Jana Mirs, for this exhibit. Her work will be on display in the library reading room, above the photocopier and above the children’s computer workstations.
The library is also accepting applications for the next three consecutive Art in the Library exhibits. The selected artwork will be on display in the library monthly in July, August and September. The application deadline for all three exhibit periods is May 29, 2015.
The selection of artwork for exhibit will be recommended by the Art Committee and approved by the Library Board of Trustees. The Art Committee will be reviewing artwork exhibition applications using selection criteria detailed in the library’s Artwork Policy. The library is committed to exhibiting the work of artists who have significant ties to the Boulder Junction and Northwoods area. Accordingly, each exhibiting artist must currently be working in the Northwoods area or have spent a significant portion of his/her career in the Northwoods area. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Art Committee. The library is committed to exhibiting works of art that are of high artistic quality and that reflect original concepts. The works of art should engage the community by inspiring reflection, questions and/or conversation.
Mindful of the public nature of the library facility and the library’s inability to consistently monitor its exhibit space, the Art Committee will consider: appropriateness of scale and design for the library’s exhibit space, fragility and/or susceptibility to damage, likelihood of vandalism, any potential risk to the public, and costs associated with the installation of the exhibition. The library does not insure any artwork that is loaned to the library for temporary exhibit. Exhibiting artists must agree to the terms set forth in the library’s Exhibition Contract.
Artwork Exhibition Applications may be picked up at the library during regular hours or here. Applications must be received at the library by May 29, 2015. Chosen artists will be notified by June 10, 2015. The next exhibits will be monthly during July, August and September.
