Bringing art to life in your community

Lost in Books Art Event

Burlington Public Library, Central Branch
Saturday, March 25, 2017
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On March 25, 2017, the City of Burlington’s public art program is inviting residents to “get lost in books” at Burlington Public Library – Central Branch. This is the second phase of a six-month research project by artist Lisa Hirmer into Burlington’s ‘cultural nodes’. Cultural nodes are areas within the city where residents can experience and share culture.

The Lost in Books event will feature five art exhibits created by local artists: Janet Horne Cozens, Donna Grandin, Vanessa Cress Lokos, George Paisiovich and Sylvie Treu Walsh. The temporary art installations will be scattered throughout the library for visitors to explore and discover. Inspired by the location, the projects are based on ideas about books, reading and the library.
