Calling all art lovers to join us for Wahiawa Public Library’s 5th Annual Leilehua Student Artist Recognition Reception at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 14, 2017!
This free event will honor state and national award-winning Leilehua High School students and two very special people who helped start the program: former Wahiawa Library Branch Manager Matt Brown who is now the West Oahu/Hawaii Island District Administrator for the Hawaii State Public Library System, and retired Leilehua art teacher Larry Taguba.
Come meet the student artists and learn about their creative thoughts, inspirations, and the Leilehua Fine Arts Program. Refreshments will be provided by the Wahiawa Friends of the Library. Professor Michael Harada, Leeward Community College Art instructor and Leilehua High School alumnus, will be the keynote speaker.
The student artists’ award-winning drawings, paintings, photos, and sculptures are currently on display at the Wahiawa Library for the public to enjoy. These artworks are part of a larger collection of artwork that includes finalists in the National Scholastic Art & Writing Competition and the Congressional Art Program. Here, State Librarian Stacey Aldrich, U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Rep. Marcus Oshiro, other elected officials’ staff, and dignitaries honored award-winning art students at last year’s Fourth Annual Leilehua Student Artist Recognition Reception at the Library.
The Wahiawa Public Library is located 820 California Avenue. For more information, click Wahiawa Library 5th Annual Leilehua Student Artist Recognition Reception or call the library at 622-6345.
