Artist's view of Fort Book

Local artist Cynthia Massey Parsons loves the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library so much that she's expressed her feelings through her art.

Cynthia has created a painting of Fort Book based on photos taken by Art Abdinoor, husband of library Director Laurel Best. Cynthia unveiled the painting on September 13, 2013, during the Huntsville Library Foundation’s fundraiser, Vive le Livre 2013: An Evening with Rick Bragg. You may purchase signed and numbered prints of her work with proceeds benefiting the library. Call 256-532-5950 for details.
