Library searching for new artwork

The Two Harbors Public Library is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals to create public artwork for the library. The art should celebrate the community and will be placed in high-traffic locations either inside or outside the library for all to enjoy.

Artists who live, work, or have connections to the North Shore or Arrowhead Regions of Minnesota are eligible for this project. The budget for the entire project is $10,000.

Artwork will be exhibited in three locations in and around the library: the Carnegie building door, the original fireplace on the second floor of the Carnegie building and outdoors on our front lawn. Proposals may be for any or all three of the locations, and may involve some or all of the available funds. This project is funded in part or in whole with funds from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy Fund.

The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. on Dec. 15.
