Exhibiting Art

Written by OPL Web Admin. Posted in Library

The Orem Public Library is now accepting applications to exhibit artwork in one of two exhibit spaces in the Children’s Wing of the library. The library hosts exhibits in order to expose library patrons and staff to new art and ideas, encourage creativity, and provide exhibition opportunities for artists in our community. Exhibits are chosen by a staff committee based on the interest of library patrons, the quality of the work, and the suitability of the work for the library’s exhibit spaces. 

Applications are accepted throughout the year and will be evaluated on a first come, first served basis. All applications must be submitted electronically to Marilee Clark at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Portfolios can be submitted through email, a website, or an online photo gallery. If you are interested in exhibiting at the library please download the application.

  • Talk about book care, what to do and not to do
  • Depending on the size of the group we can take a walking tour of the library
