Written by Krissy Chapman. Digital Media by Jessica Sturgeon. The library was alive with scenes springing from the pages as the 3rd Annual Book Art Contest was on display in Ruby E. Dare Library. Contestants from two age groups, Junior/Senior High and College and Beyond, submitted art pieces created from repurposed library books. Books were cut, folded, and paint strewn to revive the worn pages. The panel of astute judges, professors Sharon Grimes, Jessa Wilcoxen, and Jake Amundson, announced the winning contestants this afternoon. “We judged contestants’ pieces on three basic categories,” said judge Jake Amundson, “the conceptual aspect of the piece, creative execution, and the relationship between the chosen book and the art piece. We’ve had some really creative combinations this year.”
