It’s Banned Books Week and we are celebrating the freedom to read in a unique way! Each day this week, (Sept 30 – Oct 6), you can stop by either Lawrence Public Library or the Lawrence Arts Center and collect a limited edition Banned Book Trading Card - one for every day of the week.
Our call for submissions resulted in 46 entries from local artists of all ages and backgrounds. From September 30 – October 6, all of the submissions are on display in the library lobby and the original artwork for the seven selected pieces are on exhibit at the Lawrence Arts Center. Many of the submissions are on display here as well – just click on an image to read the artist’s statement about the piece.
