Deadline Extended for Public Library’s Call for Artists

Post Date:08/24/2017 8:40 AM
 BANNED BOOKS WEEK CALL FOR ARTISTS

The deadline for artists to submit works to the Banned Books Trading Cards Project at Chapel Hill Public Library has been extended by one week to Tuesday, Sept. 5. The extension allows families returning from vacation and students arriving on campus to take part in the project.

Now in its 5th year, the project invites local artists of all ages and stages to create small works of art that celebrate the freedom to read, raise awareness of the dangers of censorship, and promote local art. Details of the project can be found at chapelhillpubliclibrary.org/banned-books.

Artists of all ages from Orange, Durham, Wake, Chatham and Alamance counties may enter any piece that is inspired by a piece of literature that has been banned or an author whose work has been challenged. All submitted works will go on display during Banned Books Week, September 24 – September 30. Winners receive a cash prize. A Youth winner will also be chosen.

The size of the submission is limited to 5 inches x 7 inches, but that is one of the only restrictions.  Any medium is welcome - watercolor, mixed media, digital, pen and ink, etc. - and artists of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. Details and a submission form are available at chapelhillpubliclibrary.org/banned-books.
