Kids Design Glass Art Contest at ECRL
This summer as part of ECRL’s “Dig into Reading” summer reading program children ages 4-10 have an opportunity to enter a special contest and have their drawing turned into a glass sculpture by local glassblower, Anthony Michaud-Scorza. They may simply pick up an entry form and drawing form at any East Central Regional Library branch. Simply draw anything you want, give the drawing a “name” and fill out the entry form. The child must have a library card registered within the ECRL region to submit an entry form and may submit only one drawing. The entry form and drawing form must be submitted no later than Friday, August 2. One winner from each of ECRL’s 14 branch libraries will be chosen. The winner will be selected by a panel of ECRL board member(s), staff and the glassblower creating the glass sculpture.
Winners will get their picture taken with their individual glass sculpture and be invited to the glassblower’s studio to observe the art of glassblowing. Information on all the winners will be sent to all local media outlets and posted on the library’s website and Facebook page. The 14 sculptures will also travel to each of the 14 ECRL branches and be on display. ECRL has the right to reject any and all entries. Parents must sign a permission form in order for their child to participate in the contest. The Kids Design Glass Art Contest is a Legacy program funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Stop by your local ECRL branch today and pick up the entry and drawing form. Who knows, your drawing might just be turned into a three dimensional sculpture for all to see!
