Juried Art Exhibit

In connection with Culture Days celebrations across the country, artists age 16 and up from the Tri-Cities are participating in a Juried Art Exhibition at Coquitlam Public Library. Their works reflect one or more of the following words that define Culture Days:

Celebration | Connection | Participation | Inclusivity | Creativity | Self-Expression | Collaboration | Collective Care

Culture Days is Canada’s largest public participation campaign for the arts.
