The Thomas G. Carpenter Library's Art in the Library project began in 2008. Since the project's inception the collection has continued to grow through the generosity of artists and collectors. Most of the works are by artists from Northeast Florida. Pieces may be found on display throughout the library's four floors.
In addition to the gifts, the library building features five permanently installed art glass transoms made possible through the Art in State Buildings program. To learn more about the panels and the Art in State Buildings program, please see the "Glass Transoms - Third Floor" tab in this guide.
The Library has a new Art in the Library acquisition from accomplished regional artist Patricia Madrid, a constant supporter and artistic presence at Downtown Vision’s monthly Downtown ArtWalk.
The piece titled “Explosion of Joy in Flight” is installed on the Library’s 2nd Floor in the Library Administration Lobby
Artist Statement: In this piece, the artist conveys the butterfly as a symbol of hope and change, portrayed in an impressionistic flurry of vibrant colors. Created during a time of Thomas G. Carpenter Library Butterfly Effect project work and Presidential transition at UNF, this piece reminds the UNF family of the joy of new opportunities and the magic of transformation.
