Public libraries and public art are a natural pair. Both inspire, connect and communicate a broad spectrum of ideas.

Good public art reflects the history and values of the place in which the art is situated. It increases the cultural, social and even economic value of that community.    

Join Diane Ruggiero from the City's Office of the Arts, and Library staff to learn about the history of public art and architecture at libraries around the world, and in your own back yard. This presentation will include information and updates about the public art slated for the Burke Branch Library at 4701 Seminary Road, Alexandria, VA 22304.
