ART DISPLAY @ HML
Call for Artists
Huntington Memorial Library is sending out a Call to Local Artists. We strive to celebrate local creativity and provide a venue for greater exposure to the arts for everyone in the community. If you’re interested in displaying your 2-dimensional artwork, just stop by the library and ask for the Art Display Packet which contains all of the information you need to get started. These materials include the application and guidelines and are also available on our website. There are no application fees and the selected artist will display their work for a full 2 months. This is a great opportunity for maximum exposure to people from all walks of life since 250 to 350 people visit the library every day.
