Libraries can leverage local resources to provide patrons with access to quality art experiences and services. Embrace your art community by scaling exhibits based on budget, grant opportunities, community need, and audience interest. Plano Public Library began hosting local art exhibits in 2016 and expanded exhibit space to all 5 libraries by 2017 driven by demand in the community. Learn how to create community driven art exhibits, create policy and expectations, and connect with your local art community.
