Featured Art

Journeys of the Imagination statueThe Main Library welcomes patrons to its circle driveway with a bronze sculpture by Gary Price. According to Price's philosophy, sculpture is more than art. It is capturing events in life and then expressing them through the mind and hands of the artist. The Friends of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library purchased "Journeys of the Imagination" for the Main Library.
