"Celebrate Our Spirit" Art Display

Saturday, March 24, 2018

OBOI art contest entries will be on display at IPL from March 24 - March 31.

All entries from the OBOI: “Celebrate Our Spirit” Art Contest will be on display at the Independence Public Library Saturday, March 24 through Saturday, March 31.

The contest is part of the One Book One Independence (OBOI) programming featuring the book Stars Over Clear Lake by Loretta Ellsworth. All ages were encouraged to create an original art piece that relates to the newly adopted Independence tagline, “Celebrate Our Spirit.” A People’s Choice Award will be presented in each age group from public voting throughout the week.
