In partnership with Boston Comics in Color, the newly renovated Roxbury Branch and Teen Central are hosting a Teen Artist Summer Showcase! Teens from across Boston will be invited to submit their visual art to be displayed in the Teen spaces of branches across the city. We want to show off how teens see their communities, the library, and the whole city, so the theme of the showcase is "My Boston."
Join BPL teen librarians and a panel of local artists at 3 pm on Tuesday, July 13th for this kickoff event, where the hosts will go over the rules for submissions, the prizes, and where to get resources and art supplies to create your masterpiece. This event will be broadcast live on our Twitch channel, twitch.tv/bplts, and we invite attendees to use a free account to join the chat alongside the event so the panel can answer your questions!
