Downtown Santa Cruz Public Library Building + Local Artists + Wheatpaste = Libraries Inside Out
Year 1 we brought Artist JR’s project to Downtown Santa Cruz. Photos of Library patrons by multiple local photographers graced the walls for nearly a year.
Year 2 built on Year 1’s success, and the installation lasted for nearly a year due to dry weather. Artist Bridget Henry won a CityArts commission to install woodcuts based upon community-wide public submissions about the idea of HOME.
Folks from all over submitted drawings, poems, letters etc, which helped give Bridget inspiration.
She worked her woodcut magic and we installed it large scale on the OUTside of the Downtown Library.

We made a book of the beautiful submissions:
