The Learning Resources Center of St. Petersburg College, Tarpon Springs Campus, along with the Palm Harbor Library hosted its first annual student art show, Spring Into Art.
The heart design, which was used for the marketing of the art show, was a collaboration of 3D flowers made by staff members from both libraries. Each participant made a 3D flower, which was joined together into a structure of a heart. The heart structure was chosen because libraries are the heart of our communities.
The scope of students from the local community included 9-12 grades and college students that either attend SPC or visit the Palm Harbor Library. The goal was to jury the submissions and then have the selected art on display at the Palm Harbor Library in March and then moved for display at St. Petersburg College in April.
Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 outbreak and a stay-at-home order in place, the art show had to be delayed. Since the college is not reopening this semester, the art show was designed and shared virtually on the college’s Workplace platform and will be on display at the Palm Harbor Library for the entirety of June. Please be sure to check the Palm Harbor Library website for reopening hours and guidelines before your visit.
As you can see from the sampling in the header image, the fantastic artwork selected is very impressive. Our young artists with seasoned skills used several different mediums.
We hope you enjoy this inspirational art break. Thank you to our talented artist.
