Right now we have an abundance of amazing works on display throughout the library system. A lot of art, a little history, and some social justice - none of these are to be missed!
Make it over to the Rockridge Branch before the end of July for a chance to see lovely jewelry by Kim Anderson, who is not only a craftsperson, but is also a library employee and stunning paintings by Benny Alba.
The Main Library has three displays at the moment, each fascinating and with a different focus. The TeenZone is showing T-shirts designed by students that ask, "Is This Justice?". The Oakland History Room's new exhibit is on Boosterism and the marketing of Oakland in the past and the display cases on the 1st floor feature art by the East Bay Sketchers.
Here's a sneak peak! Look for these works of art on display in the near future.
We hope you'll check some of it out. Who is your favorite local artist? What else do you think should be displayed in the library? Comment with your ideas!
