Lending Library Opening + Show

Thursday, July 18th from 5:30- 8:00pm

Nashville Public Library Main Branch Mezzanine Gallery
615 Church St.

Show runs July 11th- August 16th

Following the successful first phase of the Lending Library, a unique Metro Arts partnership with Nashville Public Library which allows any library card holder to check out works of art from local branches, we are excited to celebrate an expansion of the Collection. Metro Arts has purchased 53 new works from local artists to distribute across five library locations: Donelson, Green Hills, Old Hickory, Hermitage, and East.


Library patrons will be able to view the entire collection at the Main Branch Mezzanine Gallery from July 11 until August 16. The works will then be distributed to the new branches and available to check out with a library card.
