In case you haven’t noticed, ArtPrize is in full swing now. The library isn’t hosting any official ArtPrize art but we do have an exhibit of student artwork that you won’t want to miss! So while you are out and about, please visit the Main Library. You can register to vote in the lobby and then head up to Level 2 to check out Word ‘R’ Us.
In the spring of 2012, an 8th grade journalism class from Southwest Community Campus school, working with Cook Arts Center and The Rapidian, completed a project called Words ‘R’ Us. The work combined art and journalism and explored current issues of immigration and injustice. The work created by these students will be on view at the Main Library’s Youth Services Department on Level 2.
