Mission

The Urbandale Public Library Art Gallery is a collaborative partnership among the Urbandale Public Library, the Urbandale Public Library Foundation, and the Urbandale Public Art Committee. The mission of this partnership is to encourage and facilitate public art of high aesthetic quality that celebrates the uniqueness of Urbandale, enhances the quality of life, makes art more accessible to the general public, and provides diverse resources for life-long learning and enjoyment.

History

The Library’s art gallery was established in 2013 to make art more accessible to the general public and to provide a venue for local artists to display their work. The gallery has proven to be a popular community asset, showcasing a wide variety of visual arts and attracting hundreds of visitors each year.
