The People’s Library – ALL DAY
WHO: The People’s Library (2013) is a highly collaborative and sustainable public art project featuring a library designed, built, and authored by community members. Utilizing hundreds of discarded books, participants pulp and create new sheets of paper. These sheets are bound to make blank books, which anyone may check out, author, and return to be included in the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library’s permanent collection. The resulting installation contests hierarchical notions of history and offers sustainable, collective, and critical alternatives for the form and function of public art.
WHAT: Throughout the day participants can help make paper, silk screen the title pages, and bind the books that will be included in the library’s permanent collection.
Invited: Any and all
WHERE: The Makers Space
