Art in the Library Call for Artists!
The Boulder Junction Public Library is accepting applications for future “Art in the Library” exhibits. The library is looking for artists for the June-December monthly exhibits. The exhibit can be a single artist or a group of artists representing a theme or medium.
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.
