Community Art Wall Exhibit
Located on the wall opposite the Children’s Room entrance
The Energy & Sustainability Committee collaborated with the Green Teams at Lane and JGMS to host an anti-idling art contest in an effort to promote awareness of the harmful impact of fossil fuels. In total, over 50 submissions were received. Lane winners were selected the week of March 13-17 and JGMS winners were selected the week of March 27-31.
The Community Art Wall is located opposite the entrance to the Children’s Room.
The Library offers exhibit space for emerging artists on the wall across from the Children’s Room. We encourage students to apply. Each exhibit generally is up for two months, though there is some flexibility in dates. If you are interested in showing your work, please contact Library Director Richard Callaghan –[email protected] 781-275-9440.
All work submitted must be original and not previously shown at the Bedford Free Public Library.

Art in any medium is welcome. Applicants may apply for an individual or group show, or the Art Steering Committee may pair artists based on theme or medium.

September, and November. They are usually scheduled twelve to eighteen months in
advance. Submit this application along with photographs, images attached to email or a

Wall work must be able to be displayed on hooks, using our hanging system. (If you're
uncertain, come in and check.) Pieces must be wired and ready to hang. No sawtooth
hangers. The BFPL Art Steering Committee hangs shows.

Your artist statement, bio/resume will be included in a guest book for the exhibition. You may include a price list in the book, but no prices will be posted on the walls.
