Welcome to the Exhibit Room

The Waupaca Library Exhibit room shall be a space to provide cultural, historical, and educational displays free to the general public.

We exhibit 6-8 shows each year showcasing local artistry, industry, memorabilia and education. If you are interested in showing your collection, please read the Exhibit Room Policy to learn more about the use for this space. The Exhibit Room is made possible through generous support from the Waupaca Public Library Foundation.

The Exhibit Room is located in the lower level of the library (off of the Children’s Department) and exhibits are FREE and open to the public during regular library hours.

Currently on Display

Through a series of photographs from many states between the coasts, photographer and author Drake Hokanson explores something of the nature of life and the landscape apart from the big urban centers that so often define us as Americans.

Drake Hokanson is an author, photographer, and independent scholar who looks to the broad American land, its places, well-worn paths, people, and stories as the subjects for his photographs, books, exhibits, and essays. He is the author/coauthor of three books, has edited and contributed to several others, and has exhibited photographs coast to coast. He taught photography and nonfiction writing at the university level on three continents for more than 30 years. Currently he is an organic, independent, free-range scholar living and working in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
