Art Exhibit Opportunities

The City of Carlsbad’s Library & Cultural Arts Department is seeking artists to exhibit for two months at a time during 2020 at the Carlsbad city libraries. The call is open to all artists.

“We display works of artists in our libraries to capture their vision and share their talents,” said Curator of Exhibitions Karen McGuire. “This artwork enlivens the library and embodies the artist’s vivid imagination. We hope to inspire our community to explore their own artistic talents and encourage them to seek out and enjoy greater interaction with art and local artists.”
