The Artist-at-Work program features an artist or group of artists who demonstrate their craft in a high-traffic area of the library. The artist performs two demonstrations in a one-month period, usually on Saturdays. One demonstration takes place at Central Library and one at a community library.
with Grace Hilbig
Saturday, August 11 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Saturday, August 18 from 1 pm - 3 pm
Using the art medium of Lego, Grace Hilbig focuses on areas of social change that are near and dear to her heart. Her mission is to build social change with Lego bricks, one brick at a time.
Through her sculptures, Grace explores poverty, disabilities, mental health, LGBT rights and racism. To this end, she uses Lego in unconventional ways. Yes, she builds spaceships and castles for fun sometimes, but most of the time she looks at Lego as one of the best art mediums ever created.
Stop by to watch as she works on one of her sculptures.
