What's on right now in the Gallery?

April 2017:
Barrington Books Week Community Mural

All are invited to contribute to our mural celebrating the power of books and stories! Drop in, choose a shape made from a recycled book page, and decorate the page here or at home. We'll add it to the mural and watch the book magic grow! Then join us for Barrington Books Week, April 21-29.



Atrium Art Installation - now through mid-2017

Minnesota-based, internationally known artist HOTTEA describes his work as “interacting with public spaces non-destructively.” HOTTEA, whose full name is Eric Rieger, has created an original work of art, "Elaine," commissioned by the Library for its beautiful atrium. The work may be viewed during the Library's regular hours, or experienced in a deeper way at our "Sundays With Elaine" events. Details.

Rieger's work has been seen on the streets of Chicago and Minneapolis-Saint Paul, on the stages of New York Fashion Week, at musical experiences like the Eaux Claires Festival and a series of concerts by Bon Iver at the Sydney Opera House, and on the sands of Ala Moana Beach in Honolulu. He has even appeared on Sesame Street and worked at Paisley Park to honor the passing of Prince. His work will be on display at the Barrington Area Library through summer 2017.
