|A public artwork commissioned by the City of Inglewood, "The Infinite Library," created by Susan Simpson, is a sculptural cabinet holding three dioramas and three peepholes giving patrons a glimpse of libraries from around the world. The Infinite Library was installed in April of 2017 and is on permanent display at The Crenshaw Imperial Branch Library.|

|Our most recent temporary exhibit, "Flashlight," tells the story of Black American Children’s Literature, encouraging children to read and write by showcasing true to life characters in an interactive display. With traditional art forms, video installations, and live exhibits, FLASHLIGHT shines light on the past, celebrates the present, and makes way for the future.|
