About the Invitation: The Hamersly Library is soliciting submissions for a show titled “The Color of Round.” We are hoping to select 40 examples of original art that use a plain, white paper sphere as a blank canvas.
The exhibition space extends from the main lobby through all three floors and presents a variety of display opportunities.
Plain white, paper spheres are available at the Hamersly Library Checkout Desk for a $6.00 fee to cover the purchase price. Photocopies of the prospectus are acceptable entries.
