Library Sponsors Night-Sky Show

Library Sponsors Night-Sky Show

On Dec. 28, 2015, the Alameda Free Library screened the PBS documentary The City Dark. Inspired by that showing, the library is soliciting entries for a community art project.

Participants should create — in art forms of their choice — a piece for display in the library. 

They should use their most-impactful night-sky experience as inspiration. Entries should be smaller than a two-foot square. Artists should bring their creations — each no more than a two-foot square — to the Main Library, 1550 Oak St., by Tuesday, March 1.

All ages and art forms are welcome. If art forms don’t easily display, for example, dance, the library asks that the artists make representations of them for the project. 

The Main Library will host a reception at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 6, to celebrate the artists.
