Art in the Library
The Boulder Junction Public Library welcomes the public to view their upcoming “Art in the Library” exhibit. The Library Art Committee and Board of Trustees selected the Students of North Lakeland School for the March exhibit in celebration of Youth Art Month. Their photography will be on display in the Reading Room, above the photocopier and in the Children’s Area during regular library hours.
The student exhibit is a combination of two projects. First, "The Face of North Lakeland" is an art show created by the students of North Lakeland School during the winter of 2016-2017. Self-portraits in different mediums were created in Ann Jensen's art class. Three of these self-portraits are hanging above the photocopier and more are also hanging at the Presque Isle Community Library.
Second, the library also has alphabets on display in the reading room that students created- no two are alike and each one shows the creativity of that child who created it. Above the children’s computer is a large alphabet quilt created by the 4-year-old kindergarten class.
This student exhibit highlights Youth Art Month, a national celebration sponsored by the Council for Art Education. The annual celebration, which typically takes place in March, emphasizes the value of art education for all children and encourages support for quality art programs in state schools. Youth Art Month began as Children’s Art Month in 1962 through The Crayon and Watercolor Institute (now Art and Creative Materials Institute, or ACMI). Today, Youth Art Month showcases the positive impact and association between art teachers and students at the K-12 level. The month long celebration emphasizes the positive influences of visual art education not found in standard core curriculum subjects.
The library is now accepting applications for the June through October 2017 exhibits. The exhibits can be a single artist or a group of artists representing a theme or medium. Artwork Exhibition Applications may be picked up at the library during regular hours or here. Exhibit Applications are due to the library by Friday, March 24.
If you have any questions about the Art in the Library exhibit, the Artist’s Reception, the application process or the Artwork policy, please email the library or call the library at 715-385-2050.
