Art can bring people together and create a sense of community. This can happen through shared experiences, such as attending a concert or visiting a museum, or through collaborative art projects that involve multiple people.

A great big thanks to Ashley Adelson, Alisha Farmer, Shea Gee and Carley Weatherbie for sharing your students and their creativity with us!

We are pretty proud to announce that one of our own, Trinity Bayliff a page at the library, is now showing in the High Wall Gallery.

This is a unique and pretty amazing show! Trinity has designed and created 2 Prom dresses - from concept, to sketches, to selection of fabrics and embellishments, to hand sewing the final creation. She brings to us her sketches and final designs in addition to graphite drawings and paintings.

You are going to want to see this up close to fully appreciate her talents!

We hope you will be our guest for an entertaining night of music at Derby Public Library!
