About the Art Wall
The South Yarmouth Library has a 25' wide and 4.5' high wall space available to display original art work including paintings, photographs, and drawings. The library welcomes a wide range of subject matter, styles and techniques from individual artists and from private collections. Due to the space limitations no works requiring pedestals can be displayed.
