The Gallery at Main
Art Lending Collection from the Braddock Carnegie Library
In March 2015, the Gallery at Main features work from the Art Lending Collection at the Braddock Carnegie Library. This collection makes artworks available for check-out to anyone in Allegheny County with a valid library card in the same way one would check out a book. The work selected for display in the Gallery includes artwork by 2013 Carnegie International artists, Prism Project artwork (a collaboration of Richard Guy and Mary Carey featuring artworks made by incarcerated artists at Fayette Correctional Facility), and works gifted by Braddock Library patrons with whom the Library has had an arts based dialogue: James Kidd, Regis Welsh and Ray Henderson.
There will be a closing reception for this show on Sunday 3/29 from 1-4pm. The artworks can be checked out at this time (with a valid library card, must be returned to the Braddock Library.)
Two organizations will share information at the event:
Book 'Em Books to Prisoners http://www.bookempgh.org/
Let's Get Free: Women and Trans Prisoner Defense Committee https://womeninprisondefensecommittee.wordpress.com/
