Libraries Change Lives!

by Diane von Arx, 2004

About the art

Since 2004, this jubilant message has been greeting visitors in the lobby of the Edina Library. And its point is quite clear: Libraries change lives! The calligraphy on Plexiglas comes courtesy of Diane von Arx, a local letter maker, artist and longtime calligraphy teacher. You can find her work on another library wall as well, paired with William Saltzman’s untitled pastel piece.
