Virtual Bad Art Exhibit
Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Is it bad or simply avant-garde?

Get creative by sharing a piece of "bad art" with the Springfield Free Public Library! All types of art media are welcome. You can be simple and stick with paper and pencil. If you're a techie, try digital painting with Photoshop, Procreate, or SketchBook. Or, you can get messy with some real paint. A photograph of a pen taped to an apple is a fine idea, too!

Send us a photo, digital scan, or image file of your artwork, and we'll assemble everyone's pieces into a virtual gallery on our Facebook and Instagram. Submissions are open to those entering 6th to 12th grade and will be accepted starting Friday, June 19th through Friday, July 31st. All submissions should be emailed to Teen Librarian Ms. Alice at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please include your name, grade, and title of your artwork. For the purpose of this exhibit, your "bad art" should be family-friendly so that it can be appreciated by all ages.
