Public library seeks local young artists
— reported by The Pasadena Citizen
February is Library Lovers’ Month and the library is asking local children under the age of 13 to share that love through art in a mural contest.
Though a United Way Grant, the library is planning a mural for its youth department and is relying on local youth to provide the imagination and talent.
Local artist/muralist Deborah Legge will determine which entrees make the final project.
“She’s going to choose select pieces and incorporate either the theme that the children have created into her overall vision of the mural,” said PPL technical service manager Lisa Loranc.
The children’s individual pieces will be on display in the library throughout March, which is Youth Art Month, said Loranc.
Submissions for the contest will be accepted between February 14 and 25 and is open to any child with an idea and 11 by 17 inches of canvass space, the maximum size allowed for each piece.
Legge will also be teaching a mural workshop in March where all area children will be able to participate in the mural project, said Loranc.
