Brand Library & Art Center provides a wide-range of free visual and performing arts programming, including concerts, art exhibitions, art and music lectures, films, dance performances, and interactive programs for families!
BOOK TO MUSIC CLUB
The Brand Book to Music Club combines reading, discussion, and music! Enjoy active discussion and listen to music inspired by themes from the book. A library copy of the book will be available for checkout. Listen to music inspired by literary works or read books that have been the inspiration for musicians!
Our next meeting is Wednesday June 15 at 4pm. You can pick up the book at Brand Library.
The Brand Gallery hosts diverse contemporary art exhibitions every year. For each exhibition, we offer an array of programming that can include artist talks, panel discussions, curator-led tours, film screenings, poetry readings, and art workshops.
This hands-on crafts program for all ages gives participants a chance to express themselves! Each program is limited to 25 participants. Programs are held in the Brand Library Courtyard on Wednesday mornings at 11am. Take away kits are available after the program has ended (supplies are limited). Our next program will be held on Wednesday June 1, 2022. Sponsored by the Brand Associates.
