MAIN LIBRARY EXPANSION PROJECT

Background: Centrally located in Mid-Cambridge, the Main Library is one of the busiest public libraries in the Commonwealth. The goal of the expansion project is to provide a state-of-the-art facility for new and traditional library services through the construction of a new building addition and renovation of the existing Main Library.

Approach: The selected artist will work with library staff and the architectural design team in the early building design stages to identify opportunities for public art and then develop the project in detail. It is expected that the artist will be involved in the interior spaces of the new addition. The design team consists of William Rawn Associates and Ann Beha Architects.
