Teen Mural Project on Display at Ruskin Branch Library

A four-panel mural, created by South County area teens is on display at the Ruskin Branch library. The project was funded by the SouthShore and Ruskin FOL groups and through a grant received from the Community Foundation of Greater Sun City Center. The mural was designed and created by teens with the guidance of Mike Parker, community arts facilitator and Laurie Burhop, art coordinator at the SouthShore Regional Library.

The mural depicts how we access information in the library. Each panel represents a different time period in history, beginning with hand-written manuscripts and ending with computers and technology. The mural is a wonderful piece of art. It says a lot about the teens in our community and their love for the library. Everyone is encouraged to stop by the Ruskin Library and view the mural!
