Art Exhibit Policy

For more information and to learn how to schedule an Art Exhibit at the library, please see our Art Exhibit Guidelines page.

Background

The Caroline County Public Library has had a long relationship with the arts through its programming of performing arts and hanging exhibits of photos and paintings in its Central Library Meeting room.  It also has had a long time relationship with the Caroline County Council of the Arts in mutual support of the arts in our county.

The Library has three branches, Central Library in Denton, Federalsburg Branch and North County Branch in Greensboro.  Currently the Central Library is equipped to exhibit framed works in its large meeting room, the second floor hallway leading to the large meeting room, and small study room on the first floor.  The Federalsburg Branch has a meeting room that would accommodate a smaller exhibit.

Policy

The Board of Trustees adopts, consistent with its mission statement, the following policy:

The Caroline County Public Library will regularly schedule temporary exhibits of visual art, (broadly inclusive,) selected by an Art Exhibit committee, responsive to the Board of Library Trustees.

All organizations or groups shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Caroline County Public Library and the Board of Library Trustees, its officers, agents and employees from and against any and all claims, suits, actions of any kind arising and resulting from and accruing from any negligent act, omission, or error of the organization or group resulting in or relating to personal injuries, property damage, or any other claim arising from the organization/group’s exhibit or use of the Library’s exhibition spaces.
