Public Invited to Dedication of New Library Mural

The Library mural will be officially presented to the citizens of Gilroy at a public ceremony on Thursday, October 29, at 4:30 p.m., in the Outdoor Paseo, south of the Library.
Local artist Sheryl Cathers recently completed the beautiful mural on the south patio wall of the Gilroy Library. The mural is 92 feet long and almost 8 feet high. This artistic effort was spearheaded by the City of Gilroy’s Public Art Committee (PAC) who is currently raising funds to encourage public art in public areas. The Gilroy City Council approved the artist rendering on April 20, 2015. The mural theme is “Community Thrives at your Gilroy Public Library.” The project is very detailed, colorful and includes elements such as reading, exploration and depictions of famous children’s novels.
It is our hope that this large-scale, colorful mural will be an inspiration for local children to enjoy reading always and to explore the world through books.
The vision of the Gilroy Public Art Committee is “to introduce and encourage a wide range of high quality public art into the community, to inspire the lives of residents and visitors, and to enhance the civic environment.”
