With the support of Friends of the Library, the Carnegie Gallery creates unique cultural experiences for Columbus Metropolitan Library visitors by presenting quality art exhibits. Exhibits are free, open to all, and feature the best work of both emerging and established artists.
The Carnegie Gallery is located on the second floor of Main Library at 96 South Grant Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215. Most artwork in the exhibits is for sale and can be purchased at the Library Store. Friends of the Library receive a 30% commission on all artwork purchased via the gallery, meaning your purchase not only supports Ohio-based artists but also supports the library.
Exhibits are curated by Stephanie Rond.
