Cultural Council’s Display Case

In addition to the Library’s wall exhibit space, we also have a display case maintained by the Chelmsford Culture Council. Do you have a display you would like to share with the community? Please complete the Cultural Council’s Display Case Application.

The display case was created by James Scarth, a furniture maker from Chelmsford. The case was commissioned by the Chelmsford Cultural Council to be used to display works by artists. The case is 45″ wide and 2 feet deep. The display space inside is 27″ high with an adjustable glass shelf.
