The Cannon Falls Library is the first of 13 locations to host the exhibit that includes 28 unique pieces of art. Each selected artist captured his or her interpretation of the easel theme and depict books, letter or letters, authors, reading, or the library. The exhibit will be in Cannon Falls from January 2 through February 12. For the complete 18-month calendar, check the 2014-2015 traveling schedule.
