Fall Teen Art Show (Ages 12-15)


Alachua County Library District is proud to announce the winners of the Fall Teen Art Show! This event showcased the talent of local teens, ages 12-15, who had this opportunity to show off their artistic side. With 75 works submitted and only a handful of awards to give out, the competition was fierce. We're very proud of our winners, and we're also very proud of all the teens who created these tremendous artistic works. 

All pieces will be on display outside of the Teen Space at the Headquarters Library starting November through December 4. Without further ado...
