Art Exhibits

Working with the City of Liberty and the Mid-Continent Library, the Liberty Arts Commission has developed three gallery spaces in Liberty that offer exhibits throughout the year. You don't just have to be paying your water bill, getting in your workout or checking out a new book to enjoy the art on display! Stop by any of these locations to take in the latest exhibits.

And, being able to give the viewer a bit of joy in the process is more than just an added extra!"
