East Syracuse-based artist Maria Rizzo invites all Onondaga County residents age 16 and older to join her in a special painting project! With just a 20-minute time commitment, you can take part in creating an interactive work of art.

As of July 24th the project is on hold. Currently the visits to NOPL for August have been cancelled. We look forward to rescheduling in the future.

Each participant will paint one section of a large canvas, to form a tree that represents the various communities in Onondaga County. Maria will provide painting supplies and guidance – no previous painting experience is necessary. Once finished, the whole work will be displayed as a symbol of the communities that created it – a unique tapestry made up of many distinct and important pieces!

 

To sign up for this exciting new project, contact Maria Rizzo directly at:
E-mail: mariarizzoart@gmail.com
Phone: 315-720-9026

 

This project is made possible by a 2014 Individual Art Commission from CNY Arts. It will be ongoing from April through the end of the year, on different days at each OCPL member library.

decorative imageDan’s shows were created to educate people of all ages about reptiles. Through informative displays and interactions, the presentations are very successful in helping the audience better understand and appreciate the special nature of these animals and their importance to the environment. The programs offer a unique opportunity to experience many species of exotic reptiles. The audience is invited to interact with the animals on an up-close and personal level; viewing, touching, and asking questions are highly encouraged.

REGISTRATION WILL BEGIN JULY 14. If you sign up and cannot make it, PLEASE call the library (699-2032) as soon as possible to cancel. This allows someone else on the waiting list to attend in your place!
