Murals to be created for library patio Artists sought to contribute to centennial project


Mon, Jun 8th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Features

Harmony Public Library has been awarded a Legacy Community Collaboration grant from SELCO (Southeastern Libraries Cooperating). The library is partnering with the City of Harmony Arts Board and the Fillmore Central High School Arts Department to design and create murals surrounding the library’s patio. A local artisan is also creating furniture to be placed in the patio area.

The murals and furniture will create a relaxing, visually pleasing space for patrons. Library director Stephanie Silvers says, “We are thrilled to be able to take currently unused space and make it inviting, using the talents of local artists, in time to kick off our centennial celebration in August 2015.”

Applications are selected based on the quality of the partnerships, innovation and the benefits to local libraries. These collaborations are unique opportunities to bring organizations together, build community and expand the wide array of projects and services local libraries provide.

For information about SELCO’s Community Collaboration program, please contact the SELCO representatives listed below. Additional information on individual projects will be in upcoming press releases. For specific project details, contact the awardees directly.
