We are ecstatic to announce that Liz Nofziger has been chosen as the inaugural Public Library of Brookline Artist-in-Residence! This program is generously funded by the Friends of the Brookline Library.

For the Brookline Library AIR program, Liz Nofziger has proposed a project titled Library Study, which will radically experiment with the many systems, spaces and structures the Brookline Library has to offer. Beginning with observation, research and development, she will take the collective sites of the three Brookline Library locations and their systems as the starting point to create a series of interventions that could include video, sculpture, and sound installed into the Library’s public spaces. Ranging from minuscule to massive in scope and scale, these interventions will urge new personal experiences that both subtly and overtly influence, enhance, and shift each patron’s experience of knowing and loving libraries.

Liz will be in residence at the Brookline Village location of the Public Library of Brookline from June through November, 2016.

There will be many public events and opportunities to engage with Liz and her work beginning with her Artist Talk on June 27th in Hunneman Hall in the Brookline Village Library.

Liz will also be keeping a blog of her research and process as the project moves along. Stay tuned!!
