Public Art & Library Love

On my recent trip to Corvallis we stopped in the public library (which is amazing for a town this size), partly to pick up Sara's library books and partly to look at the public art there.

I love, love, love libraries. If I could go back to my early 20s and re-choose a career, I would absolutely be a (probably children's) librarian in a public library.

Sara's quilting group won a competition to create a (paid!) fabric art piece to hang above and soften the computer area. Here it is, interpreting the local weather and seasons. It's a tryptich, and these pictures really don't do it justice.

There were all kinds of amazing public art there, including fun things in the children's area like a life-sized Puss-In-Boots.

Also a very, very interesting glass piece, impossible to describe, but representing the forest. Check these out!

And we can't forget Alley Art:

Can you read the spraypainted sign to the right of the poem and photograph?
It says "IM ART TOO".

What is your favorite piece of public art?
Or what career would you choose if you could be anything?
