A photographic exhibition showcasing vivid images of MELSA library buildings is on tour in the metro region. Sixteen libraries will host the exhibition displaying the work of photographer Doug Ohman. Launched in September 2014, the exhibit will travel the region through June 2016. Check the schedule to find a library to visit.
Ohman is the well known and award winning photographer of the Minnesota Byways series. In a joint project between CRPLSA and the Minnesota Historical Society Press, Ohman turned his camera to public libraries. The result was another in the popular byways series — Public Libraries of Minnesota. In that volume, 120 Ohman photographs were paired with Minnesota’s best-known authors for children.
