The Gift of Art

The Friends of the Glenview Library have commissioned artwork for designated Library locations and have donated from their own collections. When you enter the Library from the underground garage, take notice of Field Scene. This colorful painting by David W. Voros was commissioned in 1986 to hang behind the Circulation Desk in the old Library. In the Community Room, the Navajo rug and two Native American portraits were gifts from the Louann Van Zelst family. The next time you attend a Library program, make sure to view these stunning works.
