Imagination Contest Announced by Friends of Smyrna Library

“Imagine That” is the theme of Kevin M. Rucker’s upcoming exhibit at the Smyrna Library March 1-April 30th. His work is in the form of small, unusually framed illustrations which evoke the imagination. Media include graphite pencil and colored markers.

We invite you to write down your reactions to his provocative work. Do you have a story to tell about one of the illustrations? Let your creativity go and tell us what you see in these illustrations.

Your thoughts legibly written on paper may be submitted to the Smyrna Library circulation desk or emailed to by the 15th of April. This opportunity is open to viewers in the community (from elementary school through adulthood).

A panel will enjoy reading your responses discovered in your “imagination viewing.” Kevin has very graciously offered to donate his illustrations to those who write about his work. Responses will be acknowledged and the illustrations will be awarded at the end of the exhibit, April 30th.
