A Mouse in the House


FROM VERMONT ART GUIDE #6

Ryan Mays’ Sculpture at Kellogg-Hubbard Library

There’s a mouse at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier. A 5-foot tall mouse. He sits on a stack of books on the front lawn. Like most busy libraries, the organization was concerned about delivering services to the 750 people a day who visit. Passing thoughts about the front lawn were often set aside to more immediate demands until a couple from Montpelier decided they wanted to show their appreciation.

The story of this sculpture and how public art is changing the library’s relationship to art appears in Vermont Art Guide #6.

“Ryan’s mouse sculpture has been a great addition to the entrance of our library and has had a rippling effect toward other positive changes,” said Kellogg-Hubbard Library Executive Director Tom McKone.
