Vail Public Library to display public art above fireplace
Ryan Summerlin June 22, 2013
VAIL — The town of Vail’s Art in Public Places is collaborating with the Vail Public Library to prominently display works of art above the library’s fireplace on a rotating basis.
The striking stone fireplace has always served as a gathering place for library guests to relax and enjoy the many amenities provided by the library.
This central location will now serve as an ideal site for the placement of temporary art.
The public art initiative between Art in Public Places and the Vail Public Library will serve as an opportunity for artists to have a work of art on view for a period of approximately three months.
Art in Public Places members are very pleased to work with the library to offer an indoor location to promote the visual arts in Vail.
This project expands upon the already popular temporary art program established for placing sculptures on town of Vail property.
