2007 Teen Arts Exhibit Begins Tour at Springfield Public Library; Reception to honor student artists on May 7

SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce that the 2007 Teen Arts Traveling Exhibit will begin this year’s tour at the Springfield Public Library, located at 66 Mountain Avenue in Springfield. The exhibit will be on display through May 31 during regular library hours.

The Teen Arts exhibit consists of 75 pieces of art selected from more than 600 visual art works shown at the 2007 Union County Teen Arts Festival held in March at Union County College. The annual event is administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in the Department of Economic Development.

“The artwork in this exhibit is exceptional. The fact that the artists are teenagers makes the show even more outstanding,” said Freeholder Chairwoman Bette Jane Kowalski. “I encourage everyone to get out and see this fun, lively exhibit as it goes on tour throughout Union County.”

The public is invited to a Reception honoring the artists on Monday, May 7, at the Springfield Library from 7:00-9:00 p.m. For information about the Teen Arts program contact the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs at 633 Pearl Street, Elizabeth 07202; telephone (908) 558-2550. NJ Relay service users should call 711 or email culturalinfo@ucnj.org.
