Celebrate freedom of expression and show your passion for literacy by participating in the Athens-Clarke County Library’s tiny art show, “Let Freedom Read.”
Patrons are encouraged to come to the library and pick up a tiny art kit, decorate it according to the theme, and return their canvas to be displayed during the month of October for Banned Books week, which is Oct. 1-7.
To show their support for the library and say no to censorship, patrons can pick up a free art kit at the library starting September 18. Patrons can decorate it any way they wish to express their artistic vision in keeping with the theme of “Let Freedom Read.” Artists should return their canvases by Oct. 3 in order to be included in the gallery.
A $50 gift card will be awarded to the canvas that is deemed to be the best representation of theme and creativity, with a runner-up eligible for a $25 gift card.
All ages are welcome and encouraged to participate, and a free art kit can be picked up at the library while supplies last. The kit will include the canvas, paints, and brushes.
