                THE ART WORK

                For the first six months of this new project, the Committee is looking for flat art which can be hung on a wall. It hopes to open up its exhibits to three dimensional art in the future.

                The wall space available in the three Madison County Branch Libraries is limited and therefore the size of the art pieces exhibited has to be specified. Below are the measurements of the display panels in each library.

                ·         Marshall:               [59”H x 42”W], [62”H x 50”W], and [56’H x 70”W]

                ·         Mars Hill:              [40”H x 95”W] and [40”H x 204”W]

                ·         Hot Springs:           [66”H x 50”W]          


                Works of Art selected to be exhibited in the libraries may be offered for sale, with prices established by the artist. However, the library will not serve as sales agent. It will provide interested buyers with a list of prices and contact information.
