Legacy Projects > Delphi Public Library Historic Mural Project Delphi Public Library Historic Mural Project

The Delphi Public Library has commissioned a local professional artist, Terry Lacy, to create a historical art display to be installed in the library’s entryway. The display will include a large oil painting of the library, along with two museum-quality vinyl display panels depicting ephemera. This project will provide a visually appealing presentation of the library’s history that also disseminates a great deal of valuable information of interest to students, historians, and community members.
