The Art of the Library
In this episode of JOCOLIBRARY UNCOVERED, it's a deep dive into the Library's relationship with the arts.
Johnson County Library supports the Local Arts in so many ways! Start with our collection. You’ll find many types of arts books at the library – graphic design, architecture, photography, how to books, journals turned into books, knitting books. We provide exhibition spaces for artwork to be displayed at several branches and it changes out three times a year. We cohost a major film festival with the city of Lenexa. We produce a nationally renowned Teen Arts and Literature publication: Elementia featuring original work by teens in our community. And, the MakerSpace provides a space for you to be hands-on with your craft. Charles and Dave talk with Librarians Bryan Voell and Jen Van Oosbree about these and more.
Recommendations from our collection:
Charles' Choices: The Big Book of Tiny Art and Everybody Has a Podcast (except You)
Dave's Double feature: Kanopy - Banksy and the Rise of Outlaw Art and Van Gogh - A life Devoted to Art
