The Daviess County Public Library will be hosting a Black History Month Art Show during February and is seeking local submissions — whether that be paintings, sculptures, or works in other mediums.

“This show is meant to honor our local artists of color during the month of February,” said Lisa Maiden, adult programming coordinator. “Last year we had a wide array of submissions ranging from sculptures to self-portraits, and we are so excited to see the entries this year.”

The library is currently seeking local artists to display their work. Those interested are encouraged to stop by the library (2020 Frederica Street) starting Tuesday to complete an application. Due to limited space, there is a size limit. Participants can enter no more than two works of art for this show. 

The art show will be on display on the second floor of the library for the entire month of February. A closing ceremony that is open to the public will take place on February 23 honoring participating artists. The event will include a welcome speech from Pam Smith-Wright, a fashion show, and food.

To learn more, visit the library or contact Maiden at [email protected].
