New Orleans Library Hosts Black History Month 2023 Art Contest

The New Orleans Library is proud to announce its Black History Month 2023 Art Contest, which aims to celebrate the creativity and artistic talent of young people in the community.

This year's theme is " Black Resistance," which seeks to honor the achievements and contributions of all Black Americans who persevered through forms of oppression, injustice, and inequality throughout history. Artists are encouraged to interpret and express this theme in their artwork in any way they choose.

The contest is open to all members of the community, with categories for youth (ages 12 and under) and adults (ages 13 and up). Entries can be submitted in a variety of mediums, including paintings, drawings, mixed media, and digital art. All entries must be original and not previously exhibited in any other art competition.

Submissions will be accepted from February 1st through February 28th, 2023, and all artwork will be displayed at the NOLA Library throughout the month of March. A panel of judges will select the winners from each category based on creativity, artistic skill, and interpretation of the theme.

Winners will receive a prize, and their artwork will be featured in the library's collection. Additionally, all participants will receive a certificate of participation and recognition for their contribution to the celebration of Black history.

The NOLA Library is excited to provide a platform for artists to express themselves and celebrate Black history through their artwork.
