Artist-at-Work Demonstrations

The Artist-at-Work program features an artist or group of artists who demonstrate their craft in a high-traffic area of the library. The artist performs two demonstrations in a one-month period, usually on Saturdays. One demonstration takes place at Central Library and one at a community library.
