In honor of Earth Day 2010, the Parker Library invites teens 12-18 to submit works of art by March 1 for the Eco-Art Contest.
All art work must be original and created using found, used, recycled or natural objects. The Parker Library will display art entries from March 1 to March 13 and give awards on March 14, 2010.
“The reason we decided to host this contest is to raise awareness for Earth Day 2010 which is on April 22,” states Dawn Bergman, Youth Librarian with Douglas County Libraries. “This is a chance for teens to show off their artistic abilities and have their work displayed at the library for all patrons to enjoy.”
Wall pieces must measure no larger than 29”x 36” and weigh no more than five pounds. Two dimensional art must include a hanging device (wire is best) on the back of the piece. Free standing art pieces have a weight limit of 25 pounds and can be no larger than 72” x 36” x 24”.
Registration is required at 303-791-7323. Teen Eco-Art Contest information is also available on the library web site. For a list of all submission guidelines, contact any Parker Library staff member.
The Parker Library often hosts art displays for patrons to enjoy. Local Parker photographer Terry Gibson is showcasing her series titled "Moments that Beg to be Remembered" throughout February.
