You may have noticed a new art display at the Cedarbrae Branch if you've walked in recently...
We're the lucky branch that will be displaying the Young Voices art exhibit for the month of December.
These panels highlight some of the artwork that was submitted by Toronto teens to Young Voices, the library's magazine of written and visual art.
These talented young artists were selected by a small group that looked for high-quality original work that would be representative of and relevant to Toronto's diverse youth. Although only visual art is displayed in this exhibit, there are many more selections of prose and poetry in the Young Voices magazine. You can pick up a copy in your local branch, or check out an online copy of Young Voices right here on our website.
We are currently looking for submissions for the 2015 edition of Young Voices.
If you (or a talented teen you know!) are interested, be sure to check out the submission requirements and submit online. You can also print out a PDF submission form, if you'd prefer, and then simply attach it to your piece and deliver it to a staff member at your local branch.
The deadline for Young Voices 2015 is Tuesday April 7, 2015 so start thinking about your potential selection now! Remember, as Pablo Picasso said: "Everything you can imagine is real."
