View the art exhibit and listen to a free presentation by Sara Trail, founder and executive director of Social Justice Sewing Academy, at 1 p.m. Sept. 8 in Beeghly Library, 43 Rowland Ave., Delaware.
The exhibit, “We Hold These Truths: Artistic Voices of Youth,” features works by California-based Social Justice Sewing Academy that seek to inform, educate, and inspire truth-telling. The young artists represent the “resilience, brilliance, and existence of promising individuals who are most at-risk.”
The exhibit will be on display in Gallery 2001 on the library's first floor, and Trail will speak in the Bayley Room on the library’s second floor.
Presented as part of the 2018-2019 Sagan National Colloquium, the exhibit will be on display from Aug. 10 through Sept. 25.
Trail's Sept. 8 presentation will be followed by a hands-on workshop from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Pre-registration is required for the workshop, with attendance limited to 25 participants. The workshop fee is $10 for adults, free for students. Call (740) 368-3606 to register.
