Views From the Library – Kansas City Public Library, USA

Bringing art to the library, the University Library hosts the Archway Gallery. Found on the first floor of Archer, this study area displays the work of student artists beautifully. Libraries have a long history of becoming both formal and accessible galleries, and the Kansas City Public Library takes “art and the library” to the next level, becoming a work of art itself. The parking garage is a “giant bookshelf”, and the front steps are a stack of books! The book titles were selected from suggestions made by the public.
