These three Dutch Oils were generously donated by Dr. Jan and Mrs. Mary Ann Beekhuis to the City of Walnut Creek and hang on the first floor to the right of the Children's Wing.
The Children's Wing is graced with creations by Joyce Hsu Called "Flyway."
The walking tour of Street Art in Walnut Creek left me a little disappointed that there was no major piece of art decorating the outer entrance of the New Library. But tour guide, Jane Emanuel quickly dispelled those feelings by taking me inside. It is filled with Art galore! Since it cost $42 million dollars to construct the library, the city had an obligation to follow the 1% Fee Requirement and budgeted enough to house 40 separate pieces of art within its walls.
The Walnut Creek Theme is everywhere in the design of the building with the carpet pieces resembling bubbles from the stream.
