Why does art in the library matter?
“Every library, stripped to its barest mission, seeks to connect people with information. Art is information—the product of a creative process and the process itself.” Erinn Batykefer
Community art plays an important role in the life of Lafayette Public Library. In collaboration with the Lafayette Cultural Arts Council, we host art exhibits featuring local artists throughout the year at our three public galleries.
In addition to our gallery shows, we proudly spotlight local art in our permanent collection.
