Make Art Your Superpower! Spring 2022

Are you a local artist? Do you love the library? Do you want to share your art? We have teamed up with the Delta Kappa Gamma Society and have been awarded a grant to establish an Artist in Residence for Spring, 2022 at the McClure Branch.

Your art is your superpower, and you will have the chance to share that power with people in our community! As the official Artist in Residence at McClure, we will display your art on the walls, help you host an evening class at the library, help you hold weekend office hours at McClure, and team you up with a community organization to teach a week-long session with local kids!

Due to the grant, we can offer pay for your time, will supply all required materials, and the Nu Chapter will provide food, assistance, and support.

We are putting out a request for proposals for local artists because we want to bring your superpowers to the McClure Branch!
