Come see what the talented employees of the Berkeley Public Library do when they’re not at work! The 8th Annual Berkeley Public Library Staff Art Show will take place from October 16 through November 10, 2013 at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge Street in downtown Berkeley.  Original artwork will be on display in the Kittredge Street windows and on the first, second and fifth floors. The show includes painting, collage, photography, ceramics, fiber arts, woodworking, beading and other unique arts.

Meet the artists at the reception on Saturday, October 19, from 12-1 p.m. in the first floor Catalog Lobby.  Light refreshments will be served.  Immediately following the reception, join the artists in the construction of Living Book Art: a Community Project, from 1-2 p.m. on the first floor near the entrance.  All are invited to help create an artful arrangement of pre-selected books.  Working together, we’ll sort by size, color, or other possibilities to make an ever-changing display for the public to enjoy.  The book art installation will be up from October 19 through October 26.

Enjoy the creativity of the library staff on your next visit to the Central Berkeley Public Library.  Central Library hours are Monday 12-8, Tuesday 10-8, Wednesday through Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 1-5.
