Sara Lovas's artwork will express the joy, adventure and new perspectives gained through reading and learning. Anchoring the installation and placed near the entrance will be a bronze sculpture depicting a stack of books with a small figure reading an open book on top. From the stack of books will emerge a frosted cast aluminum figure. Library patrons will soon discover fifteen (15) similar figures, each approximately 14" in height, exploring, climbing, jumping, running, crawling and investigating, inside and outside the library.
