Collaborate with PVLD!

The Palos Verdes Library District's mission and vision is to create an environment of learning and inspiration for Peninsula residents and to be the community’s center for discovery, lifelong learning, and personal enrichment.  Artists can collaborate with the library to present a program related to their exhibit, giving them the opportunity to experience a platform to display their art.  Community members interested in art benefit from the chance to explore many different mediums and techniques with the presenting artists while having the opportunity to view the work of, and network with, other area artists.
