The Daviess County Public Library is hosting a Black History Month Art Show during February and is looking for local submissions, whether they be paintings, sculptures or works in other media.

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

The library is currently looking for local artists to display their work. Interested parties are encouraged to stop by the library (2020 Frederica Street) beginning Tuesday to fill out an application. Due to limited space, there is a size limit. Participants may 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 throughout the month of February. A closing ceremony open to the public will be held on February 23 in honor of the participating artists. The event will include a welcome speech by Pam Smith-Wright, a fashion show, and food.
