In celebration of the Morse Institute Library’s 150th anniversary, the Town of Natick and the Morse Institute Library have issued a call for artists to design, construct, install and maintain three original, temporary Outdoor Reading Rooms in public green spaces across the community next summer.
Outdoor Reading Rooms are open-air ‘rooms’ where anyone may sit and read—no library card needed. The Morse Institute Library’s Bookmobile and Book Bike will support each Outdoor Reading Room with pop-up programming such as children’s story times, author talks, book clubs, and historical programs. The spaces will also be available to support public programming led by other municipal departments, nonprofits, and community groups. The Morse Institute just need artists to make them!
Check out the call for artists and consider applying. Responses are due Friday, October 21, 2022.
Here’s a link to a recent Zoom info session that covers all the ins and outs of the grant.
If you have questions please do not hesitate to reach out to Jane Ellen Newman Newman at email@example.com
This public art program is possible due to the generosity of Cognex and the New England Foundation for the Arts.
