Project Description

UrbanArt Commission is partnering with the City of Memphis to produce a large sculpture that attracts and engages Memphians and visitors to the library. The goal of the project is to create a public art piece that will:

  • Be interactive and engage visitors and encourage the use of the library’s extensive and expanded services
  • Be durable and able to sustain interactive use
  • Consider the mid-century architecture and history of the library community
