Please join us as the four finalists for the new East Library's exterior public art project present their proposals at a public meeting being held on Tuesday, February 4th at 5:30 p.m. in Centennial Hall's Loos Room, 733 N Eighth Street.
Ray Chi, Susan Falkman, Catherine Lottes, and Colin Matthes submitted projects tasked with activating the space outside the library and engaging visitors while reflecting the ideas of community, literature, story, and learning.
To submit your own comments, please take this online survey after you check out each artists' proposal.
The public art project for the East Branch is funded in part by grants received from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Mary L. Nohl Fund, Marvin W. Haesle Fund for the Arts and the Jean Hutchinson Fund, the Milwaukee Arts Board and from the sale of the former East Library Eames furnishings. The library has budgeted $25,000 for the external art work.
