Exhibits are on view throughout the Clark Memorial Library during normal library hours. Some pieces may be offered for sale by the artists.

Art in the Clark exhibitions by Verde Valley artists are curated by Clarkdale artist Jenny Emminger. Art in the Clark was created by the late Mary Liggit, a Founding Friend of Friends of Clark Memorial Library, in conjunction with CML’s Library Coordinator. “Seasons” run from November – October because Mary initiated Art in the Clark in November 2017 following the 90th birthday reopening of CML on October 19.
