Plano Public Library supports art in the community by displaying artists’ work in each of the five libraries. We recognize that art in public places contributes to the life and vitality of our community and hope that you will visit the libraries and see what is on display. On Exhibit
Exhibiting at the Library
Artists should contact the exhibit coordinator at the library where they would like to display their work. More info
18st AIRSpace Changing to Spotlight Art
After a three year grant (and Friends of the Plano Public Library) funded trial, the 18st AIRSpace will no longer exist as a physical space at Harrington Library. The successful artist in residence concept is expanding into SpotlightArt, which will feature the same type of artist demonstrations and artist-led workshops at all five libraries. All Plano libraries currently feature art exhibit spaces, and adding hands-on, interactive time with visiting artists will allow people across the city to experience art at the library. Look for Spotlight Art in our spring 2020 ENGAGE event brochure.
While you’re waiting, stop by any of the five Plano libraries and see art on display. On Exhibit
