Capital City Art

We seek out local artistic talent and promote our galleries as places where other Edmontonians can discover their amazing work. Capital City Art showcases both the community art and permanent art in all our locations.

Gallery at Milner

The inaugural theme of the community gallery at the Stanley A. Milner Library is IMAGINE. In 2020, we invited community artists to submit works that align with this theme.

EPL offers free space for local artists to display their works. We also provide space for exhibits through partnerships with not-for-profit arts groups, educational institutions and community organizations. By doing so, we hope to encourage creativity and foster collaborative relationships within our communities.

Local Art

Libraries simply make sense for public art, says David Turnbull, Director of Public Art and Conservation with the Edmonton Arts Council (EAC).

“What we’re really looking at is considering the space and the citizens that use that space. And libraries are a place for gathering, for experimenting – they’re a home away from home.”
