*Due to COVID-19 and the renovation of Central Library, physical visual arts exhibitions by BPL Presents are currently postponed until further notice. At this time, we continue to plan our regular season for Spring 2021 and are currently reconfiguring how we bring you contemporary art. Our commitment to creating a shared public space with you where art connects meaningfully to the conditions of our lives is unflagging. We look forward to seeing you soon.
