Art In The Library

The ‘Art in the Library’ program is a natural extension of the library’s commitment to cultural education. The goal is to foster greater appreciation for art in our community by providing a venue for community access to many kinds of creativity and materials, while showcasing and supporting our many local artists.

The program presents local artwork for the encouragement and development of artistic expression. The displays run two to three months in length, and feature up to six artists at a time. The Scotts Valley Library invites artists living or working in Santa Cruz County to submit an application to display their art in an upcoming exhibition.   > application form.
