Limited Edition Alice Prints Now Available for Pre-order at the Pittsburg Public Library

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The Pittsburg Public Library’s beloved Alice Through the Looking Glass painting has returned to the library after nearly a year and a half long restoration project.

Painted by Oakley E. Richey, Alice was presented to the library in 1941—in memory of Marcia Ethelwyn Mendenhall Snedden.

The Alice painting has been a cornerstone of the children’s department for 75 years, and has become a cherished symbol of the library to generations of community members. Unfortunately, Alice has also been subjected to a leaky roof, decades of dust, and an ill-fitting frame.

Thanks to the Friends of the Library, Alice has been expertly cleaned, repaired, and reframed, preserving this beautiful artwork for years to come.

We now offer you this rare opportunity to make Alice a part of your home with a limited-edition gallery wrap print, professionally created by Miller’s Professional Imaging and Mpix.

  • This canvas wrap is approximately a quarter size of the original painting (22″ H x 30″ W).
  • Orders will be taken through 2016 and your gallery wrap will arrive in early 2017.
  • A portion of the purchase price is tax deductible.
  • Proceeds from the sale of the prints will benefit the Friends of the Pittsburg Public Library.
  • Don’t be late for this very important date! Reservations for orders will be accepted through Saturday, December 31st, 2016.

Those wishing additional information may call the library at (620) 231-8110.
