ARTISTS OF THE MONTH
The Peru Free Library's new year-long project will integrate art, artists and community. Each month a new artist will be announced. Create your own art inspired by that artist and his/her art. At the end of the month, email us a photograph of your artist-inspired work to be featured. Go learn something new and experiment. Paint, draw, sculpt, collage or photograph. Make art! There are no boundaries.
