The Shawnee Public Library invites the community to the unveiling of a mural for the library, produced by local teens, at a special program at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, in Community Rooms A and B of the library, 101 N. Philadelphia Ave.
The mural was created by teens during this year’s Summer Reading Program, and will become a fixture in the library. Julie Blackstone, Assistant Professor of Art at Oklahoma Baptist University, was the designer and facilitator for the project.
The mural features 30 8-inch by 8-unch clay tiles that were carved, stained and fixed into the final production.
This isn’t the teens’ first contribution to the look inside the library. Two summers ago, a group helped produce four painted murals with different themes that continue to hang in the building.
This year’s participating teens will be honored at the event.
The project was funded by the Junior Service League of Shawnee.
