    Submit your art to be displayed in the Black History Month Art Show

    Submit your art from January 24th through February 7th.

    We are honoring our local artists of color during the month of February by hosting an art show. Submitted artwork does not have to be Afrocentric. You may choose whichever media you would like.

    In addition to your work, please provide us with a photo of yourself and a short bio describing your work as an artist. Both items will be displayed along with your artwork.

    Due to limited space, there is a size limit. Paintings can be no larger than 30” by 30”, while sculptures and other dimensional art should be no larger than 24” by 24” by 24”. You can enter no more than 2 works of art per artist for this show.

    Applications with art and supporting material can be turned in at the second-floor Information Desk beginning Monday, January 24th. Applications and art will be accepted through Monday, February 7th. Art will be displayed on the south side of the second floor through the month of February. You will be responsible for picking up your art by Monday, March 7th. Any unclaimed art will not be stored due to space restrictions.

    By completing the below application, you agree to the above rules and itinerary. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Maiden at 270-684-0211, ext. 232 or [email protected].

    The library would like to make a video celebrating our local artists of color. If you would be interested in being interviewed for the video, please contact Lisa Maiden to schedule a time to come in during the last week of January or the first week of February.
