Visit the new library displays of Authors Park Brick Recipients
The celebration began on Sunday, April 12th with our annual Brick Ceremony honoring local artists and authors. Each honoree received a "sacred brick" to match one
that is installed in the park pathway in front of the gazebo.
These “sacred bricks”* are the original bricks used to pave the downtown Commerce area in the early 1920’s
This year we honored the creative achievements of
Anthony Harris, author
Karl Umlauf, artist
David Zvanut, artist
The late Curtis Anders, previous brick recipient and generous patron of the Commerce Public Library, was also honored at the ceremony and with a special exhibit featuring the history and legacy of the Anders' family in Commerce
The displays honoring the brick recipients and the Anders Family remain in the library during the week.
*Each year engraving on the bricks is done free-of-charge
by Pioneer Memorials in Sulphur Springs, Jerry and Gloria Matthews, owners.
