OUR NEW LOGO!
We thank Joel Hotchkiss for our distinctive new library logo. The design highlights our famous "Beardless Draped Lincoln" by sculptor Leonard W. Volk as well as the many mobiles that create our library's unique style.
Joel has been designing and creating contemporary kinetic art and hanging mobiles since 1976. His art mobiles have been sold in museum stores including the Guggenheim Museum, the SFMOMA and Chicago Art Institute. Check out his "sculpture in air”online or - better yet - stop in his shop downtown, beside the Post Office.
