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.
