Celebrating Delavanites: Photo Essay Display – May 16 – June 30, 2022.
A captured moment in the life of Delavanites: photo essays are a form of visual storytelling–the photographer sharing a story or narrative with the viewer. Join APL in helping curate a photo essay display entitled DISCOVERING DELAVANITES in celebration of Delavan becoming a city. Possible photo topics could include a child at play, a person or people at work (teacher, farmer, chef), or neighborhood gatherings. All ages are welcome to submit their photos. Submissions begin Monday, May 16, and run through Thursday, June 30, 2022. Photos can be dropped off at the library or e-mailed to aramlibrary@aramlibrary.org
Please add descriptive information on the back of the photo or e-mail submission including: title of work, name of topic, date of photo, photographer’s name. Photos will be displayed during the months of July & August at Aram Public Library. Photos will then be donated to the Delavan Historical Society as a historical opportunity.
