Last Week of Art on Park Centennial Exhibition Part 1

The start of October marks the end of Twin Cities Library's Art on Park Centennial Exhibition. Come by the library before the end of this week to enjoy the diverse selection of artistic works by talented SMU alumni, staff, and students one last time!

And wonderful news! Because of the overwhelmingly positive response to Art on Park's call for artists, a second Centennial Exhibition will open soon, showcasing additional works by talented SMU alumni, staff, and students! Wahoo! The second show will start in November. Watch our website and blog for more details.

From the whole SMU community (and especially from the librarians) to the artists - we LOVE your work and have enjoyed it immensely for the past six months. And we're looking forward to the next show!
