Local youth paint mural at the main library

The Arts Commission, Lucas County Job and Family Services and the Toledo Lucas County Public Library (TCLPL) recently created a mural to celebrate youth and art. 16 youths, chosen from around the city, were selected to paint a mural at the main library. The Commission hired the young people as apprentices for their Young Artists At Work program (YAAW). The theme of the mural, “Create,” was selected to represent the continuing role that libraries play in the 21st century. Comprised of four larger-than-life figures that represent the fields of art, literature, nature and music, the mural is located in the parking garage of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library at 325 N. Michigan St. For more information on the project, call 419-254-2787, ext. 1015.
