About Alpharetta

Alpharetta City Library is set into a hill in the midst of the downtown retail area. It blends well with the surrounding government and retail buildings, yet stands out as a community destination. The artwork at this location communicates this sense of belonging with The Lion and the Mouse - David Landis’ Stainless Steel Cast aluminum from the Aesop fable. The humble mouse comes to the rescue of the mighty king of the beasts. Sometimes called the “neighborhood artist”, Landis is one of the South’s most prolific public artists. His works often feature animal themes. This specific work reflects the vulnerability and the strength of our library institutions as places of gathering, education and learning. Come explore both floors of the Alpharetta library and all of the artwork that makes this an instant Alpharetta landmark.
