The 2016 Teen Art Show for Ages 12-15 was a tremendous success. Forty artists submitted seventy-two pieces of artwork. The judges were impressed by the variety and quality of artwork. All of the artists received certificates for artistic excellence and participation along with prizes from ACLD. The Library applauds the young artists' talent and courage!
