GYST DO IT! With The Floating Library
Sarah Peters is an artist, writer, arts administrator and public art project creator, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her passion project, The Floating Library, explores the underused amenity of the urban lake as a civic and creative place for public engagement. The Floating Library is a boat stocked with artist-made books that has floated in lakes around Minneapolis and in Los Angeles, in the man-made Echo Park Lake, as part of the L.A. Art Book Fair.
For the past six years Sarah has been part of the team that produces and organizes the annual one-night public art event Northern Spark, which draws thousands of people for a dusk to dawn festival that activates the entire city through participatory art projects and performances.
