“Learning Patterns” by LAA Office – Expanding on LAA Office’s current research into the design and construction of Library, “Learning Patterns” reinterprets historical diagrams used to organize the library’s furniture layouts. Each layered relief painting is an homage to the playful patterns created by groupings of tables, chairs, and book stacks in the plan view. A mural on the gallery’s east facade presents a larger composition that celebrates an important part of Columbus’ design heritage.
“Respectfully submitted, Cleo Rogers” by the Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives – Columbus native Cleo Rogers served as the director of the Bartholomew County Public Library from 1936 to 1964. “Respectfully submitted, Cleo Rogers” explores the life of this extraordinary woman who dedicated herself to having a positive impact on the community and its future.
