Community Outreach Project

     A long term goal of Ontario County Arts Council is to bring visual arts into our Ontario County communities. One way to accomplish that is to provide visual arts experiences at our local libraries. We started in 2013, at the Bristol Library, installing an exhibit system corner above their public computer area.  In the fall of 2015, OCAC provided funds for an art display system to be installed at the Bloomfield Library in their entrance hall and in their Community Room. In June of 2016, OCAC provided a grant to the Victor-Farmington Library to purchase an art display system that was hung on two walls of their library. The Wood Library in Canandaigua received an OCAC grant to refurbish their Community room  exhibit system, OCAC providing new cables. For 2018, the Naples Library was awarded a grant to purchase two exhibit systems, one for their Children’s area and one for their downstairs community room. OCAC member artists and other local artists now display artwork at all of these locations. Some of our artist members also provide low cost or free art classes and programs to the local libraries.
