Children’s art based on the theme “My Family Works” will be displayed in the library’s Parkside Gallery on the lower level while the Smithsonian exhibit is in place on the upper level Dec. 16 through Jan. 28, 2012.
Children can create drawings on sheets currently available at the library or create a drawing, painting, photography, collage, or other flat-surface art using their own materials. The art should reflect jobs family members do – whether or not they do it for pay. The child’s name and age should be included on the front of the art. Art should be taken to library’s Checkout or Research and Information desks at 702 E, Front Ave.The public can get a sneak peek at TWWW during the library’s Open House on Dec. 16, noon to 5 p.m. Other exhibit-related events include:
