Upgrade on the Gallery Space at the Library
The Lawrence Public Library is going through renovations that will change the entire layout of the library. This includes the current gallery space. At one point, no space was designated to show art for the new library. However, this has changed. Serious discussions have been underway to decide how to show art work in the new space. Permanent art will be displayed by means of one large purchase, or several purchases; artists from the region have submitted proposals. Placement will depend on the materials and scale of the project. Because the gallery space for rotating work of the current library lay out is small and under used, some have felt an upgrade is needed. Options on lights and display are being debated in designs for the new library.
