Studio Lounge

Studio Lounge is a recorded performance featuring local musicians playing at MCL's 970West Studio. Local musicians are invited to play original songs live in the studio, which the library records and stores in the digital archive for library patrons to view on demand.

Artist in Residence

Mesa County Libraries are providing studio space in the 970West Studio for an Artist In Residence Program. Artists will have a designated work space and are encouraged to use this time as an opportunity for growth and development while engaging with the community. Each Resident will be expected to work with library staff to provide at least three library workshops (one per month) during his/her three-month residency.
