Juried Art Exhibit 2024

Juried Art 2024

Celebrate the arts with the Coquitlam Public Library's third annual Juried Art Exhibition, taking place September 26 through November 6, 2024. 

This year's theme is “Openness” and “Curiosity” – two of Coquitlam Public Library’s essential values:

  • Openness: To ideas, to differences, to possibility.
  • Curiosity: We are always asking: What would happen? How could it be better? What if…?
