Community input wanted for “Libraries Grow Community” Mural Project at the Lanesboro Public Library. Online survey or paper questionnaire available now

Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – The Lanesboro Public Library is happy to announce that it has been awarded a SEMAC (Southeast Minnesota Arts Council) grant to have a mural painted in the entrance hallway. The theme of the mural will be “Libraries Grow Community”. Friends of the Library committee members are now collecting input from the community to help in the design of the mural. Anyone who has any interest in the Lanesboro Library or a history of using the library can participate in this survey – and later in the actual painting of the mural! The survey will be mailed out with the Lanesboro Public Utilities bill, and can also be accessed online from the library website: http://www.lanesboro.lib.mn.us/ (scroll down a bit and click on the “Libraries Grow Community Survey”). Another option for finding the survey is to visit the Lanesboro Library, and friendly staff there can not only provide folks with a paper copy, but show them where the mural will be created in the entrance/lobby space.

Professional artist Leisa Luis Grill has been hired to design and paint the mural. The design process will include Grill’s review of the survey results, reading responses from questions like “What does the library mean to you?” and “What makes you feel a sense of community at the library?” Grill will create the design, and then execute the mural in a “paint-by-numbers” format, which will allow for plenty of community participation in the painting phase (September). Rochester, Minn. artist Leisa Luis Grill has created murals and public art projects in Minneapolis, LaCrosse and Rochester, and has participated in juried exhibitions throughout southeastern Minnesota. She has received many awards since 1996, including the Lyndale “Brick” Award for her mural. Her work is also shown in Lanesboro Arts Center’s Juried Sales Gallery.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. The Lanesboro Arts Center is partnering with the Lanesboro Library and Friends of the Library to make this mural project a reality. For more information about the mural project, contact Tara Johnson at the Lanesboro Public Library, 507-467-2649; or Sara Baskett at Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446.
