Meet Marin Brennan, a familiar face at the front desk at Williamson County Public Library. Before starting at the library, she graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with degrees in illustration and literary arts and studies. She keeps up with her art by creating large theater sets for Harding Academy productions.
In 2018, she competed for and won grant monies provided by the Library Foundation and Friends of the Library to paint a mural in the story theater at the main library and in the six branches of the Williamson County Public Library system.
Marin started painting in December and is expected to complete all murals this spring. Each mural will represent their unique community. Together, they represent Williamson County.
"The murals are inspired by each unique community of Williamson County. I wanted to represent each of them in a colorful, playful and whimsical way, making sure to highlight specific aspects of beautiful Tennessee."
"My favorite thing about Williamson County is how much everyone loves the library. It's exciting to see how integral it is to our patrons' everyday lives. It really brings the community together, and we get a chance to form real connections with the people we meet. Some of the best people I know I met through Williamson County's main library."
