Introducing the latest artist-in-residence in the Bubbler room - Taylor Rushing! Taylor’s residency will focus on the absolute accessibility of culture and knowledge from the lens of self-taught makers, hobo whittlers, punk rock zinesters, shaman and librarians. He will emphasize the use of humble materials, cartoons and down home crafts in his time at the library - and encourages all patrons to pay him a visit!
