Library Updates

Supporting local student artists

Posted by lclemons on

In March each year, Youth Art Month celebrates the visual arts! The national program encourages support for art programming. The Elementary Art Show was a collaboration between the Crown Point Community School Corporation’s Elementary School art teachers and the Crown Point Library. The exhibit offered a positive experience for the student artists and the public. In March, over 250 works of art filled the lobby display cases and art gallery, all created by students in grades K-5.

Having an art gallery space inside a library may seem outside the norm, but dedicating space for this purpose fits into our mission to be a place for the community to gather and connect.

Over 400 people attended the art show reception. As they wandered from piece to piece, students posed in front of their artwork, beaming with pride. The evening was evidence that a library is truly a gathering place, and its value in a community goes beyond the books on the shelves.  Special thanks to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring refreshments at the reception and to the art teachers:

June Wylie – Eisenhower,

Lyn Czapla – Solon Robinson,

Ashley Immig – Winfield,

Jennifer Popp – Jerry Ross,

Suzanne Teesdale-Timothy Ball,

Nathan DeYoung -MacArthur, and

Esther Key – Lake Street.


In April, visit the Library’s exhibit space to view the Tri-Kappa Art Show including the works of art by students enrolled in advanced art classes at Crown Point High School.
