COLLIDER artist-in-residence program

COLLIDER, the South Central Regional Library’s artist-in-residence program, connects the public with art and the people who create it. Special studio space within the Library allows artists to create on-site.

Generous funding from Councilwoman Madonna Flood makes the COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence program possible.
