Exhibit Space and Selection Process

Exhibit Space

There are 3 exhibit spaces available at the San Mateo Main Library:

  • Main gallery - 1st floor meeting room hallway
  • Exhibit Case - 2nd floor
  • 3rd floor - Cafe walls & Teen Lounge

Selection Process
How often does the library select artwork?

  • The library convenes a Library Art Selection Committee annually that includes representatives from the community, local artists and library staff.

What kind of art is selected?

  • The Committee seeks art that represents the diversity of our community and varied artistic styles and mediums.
  • Potential exhibitors must have a minimum of fifteen (15) pieces available to hang for the duration of an approximately 60 day exhibit period.
  • Art pieces may be available for sale, but that is not a requirement for exhibiting.
