This is one of our favorite days of the year. Why? Library staff members get to shop for student art at the Spring Fling Art Show. We love supporting VWCC student artists. These two new works of art that will grace the library permanently. Congratulations to Caitlin Smith (“Utada Hikaru” Mixed Media) and George Kelly (“Tone Study II” Painting).
