Union County Teen Arts Touring Exhibit Now On Display At Linden Public Library

The Union County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to announce the 2024 Teen Arts Touring Exhibit is now on display at the Linden Public Library. This year’s exhibit is a selection of 21 works selected from the 2024 Union County Teen Arts Festival, an annual two-day event celebrating creativity in the literary, performing and visual arts held at Trailside Nature & Science Center in Mountainside.

“The Teen Arts Festival provides a platform for teenagers in Union County to showcase their artistic talents,” said Union County Commissioner Chairwoman Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded. “This annual tradition of taking selected works on tour not only celebrates their creativity but also inspires younger artists to pursue their passions and gain confidence in their abilities.”

The Union County Teen Arts Touring Exhibit is currently on display at its first stop – the Linden Public Library, located at 31 East Henry Street, Linden, NJ 07036. Additional locations of the tour, which will travel through early 2025, include the Union County Commissioners Gallery in Elizabeth, as well as public libraries in Cranford, Roselle, Elizabeth & Plainfield. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
