EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ—Art has always been an expression that knows no bounds. In the era of social distancing, creativity for many has been an outlet. To showcase emerging artists in the area, the East Brunswick Public Library (2 Jean Walling Civic Center) held the Grownup Summer 2020 Art Challenge.

The result is an online gallery, sharing the work of area residents. It is available online for viewing at ilove.ebpl.org/art-challenge.

“The library received many submissions in different visual art types, from painting to video to photography,” says Melissa Hozik, Adult Programming Librarian. “We are excited to celebrate the creativity of our residents while are exhibit walls are still not open for viewing.”

The online gallery features pieces in several formats and allows the world to see the talented artists that call the area home.
