50th Annual Art Show

Friends of the Eckhart Public Library Art Show chair Ann Green speaks with Eckhart Public Library Programming Specialist Mary Graber about the 50th annual area Art Show and the 7th annual Teen Art Show.

Adults who reside or work in DeKalb, Noble, Steuben, or LaGrange counties, and students in grades k-12 who live in, or attend school in DeKalb County are eligible to participate.

Exhibits will be received at the Eckhart Public Library on Monday, May 8 from 4:30 – 7:30 pm.

An awards reception will be held on Thursday, May 11 from 6:30 – 7:45 pm. Artists and their guests are welcome to attend.

If you’re not an artist, but you love viewing the exhibits, you’re in for a special treat this year. In honor of the Art Show’s 50th anniversary, the Tri Kappa sorority has graciously agreed to lend the Friends several Purchase Award-winning pieces from previous Art Shows, which will be displayed for public viewing during this year’s show.

Details and entry forms are available at the Main Library and Teen Library, as well as on the library website.


About Chelsea

I've been working at Willennar Genealogy Center for over two years now, and I've loved every minute of getting to learn more about the stories of DeKalb County and the surrounding area. I'm interested in all kinds of history, but I'm especially fond of the early film industry, old letters and journals, the DeKalb County Fair, and the Interurban line.
