I think public spaces in general are so important. And the Library tends to cultivate a safe space, along with being a public space. So being an artist coming into that kind of space, I feel very secure being able to show my work, talk to the public . . . everyone just wants to learn and grow together. And that’s a really, really cool thing.
Fiber artist Hollis Hare made their first public artist talk at PPL on their unconventional felting method as they work to complete “The Ill Fitting Mask,” a relief sculpture triptych funded by the RISCA Make Art Grant. Hear from Hollis about this experience and thoughts working with the Library.
