The Public Library for Artists: A Primer
Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010 at 6pm in the ArtCenter Gallery 800 Lincoln Road
“The public library is where place and possibility meet.” – Stuart Dybek
Public libraries were Miamiâ€™s original alternative exhibition spaces. Since the 1960s, local, national and international artists and curators have worked with the Miami-Dade Public Library System. As well-used civic and community spaces, libraries can challenge artists to experiment and think about their work in new and different ways. The Miami-Dade Public Library System offers artists not only exhibition opportunities, but free access to many other resources:
arts, image, and grant databases
the Vasari Project, an archive for research and documentation of visual art in Miami
books, magazines, DVDs, and downloadable video, film and music
information about legal and business resources of interest to artists
As Library Curator, Denise Delgado oversees the Art Services and Exhibitions Department at MDPLS, manages an exhibition program for the 47-branch system, develops public programs, acquires new work for the Libraryâ€™s permanent art collection, and oversees its care and management. At this informal presentation, weâ€™ll talk about the opportunities and resources available to artists through MDPLS, its yearly Call for Proposals, and more.
