Art Display Policy

Purpose

The Muehl Public Library seeks to provide access to educational, informational and cultural resources to the community. As part of that belief, the library encourages artistic and cultural interests of the community by providing a showcase for art by community and area artists.

Policy

The Muehl Public Library allows artists to display their artwork for a period of one month. Artwork should be displayed by the first weekend of the month and taken down during the last weekend of the month to allow incoming artists time to set up their own work. Artists interested in displaying their artwork should contact the Library Director. Artists are chosen on a first-come, first-booked basis.

The artist is responsible for setting up his or her own artwork, arranging, and dismantling their exhibit. The library staff is not available to assist the artist with setting up or taking down their artwork.

The Muehl Public Library is not responsible for any artwork that is lost, damaged or stolen while on exhibit or display.

The Muehl Public Library will not charge for the right to display artwork.

The Muehl Public Library reserves the right to decline content that is decided not to be appropriate for display.

Artists are not to display their artwork for sale during the duration of the exhibit.

The presentation of any artwork does not imply an endorsement of the exhibit by the Muehl Public Library, its Trustees or its staff.
