Colorful Mind Virtual Exhibit

We were disappointed to announce our temporary closure so soon after this exhibit was hung. Though we know nothing can compare to seeing art in person, we are happy to share some images from the gallery alongside a beautiful video created by Ms. Choi.
To view slightly larger versions of each photo, right-click on the image and choose “Open image in new tab.”

Colorful Mind
A collection of artwork created by young local artists
Curated by Jong-un Choi

As part of their commitment to bring art into the community, the Colorful Mind youth art exhibition is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of the young talented artists in the West Lafayette community. The purpose of this show is to provide all young budding artists with opportunities to advance their talent. This exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for art lovers and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our community. 


There will be a Community Input Meeting Thursday, March 26 at 6:30 pm in the Elm & Walnut Rooms of the Library.
