Together Oakwood Project: A curation of art and written works, about our community, by our community.  

Our canvas submission period is over. Plan to participate in the Community Creation Day on December 4th.


We invite artists and writers of all abilities and ages to participate in Together Oakwood. The Library wants to hear from you about all that you love best about Oakwood—its heroes, its characters, its traditions, its goodness.  What brings us together and makes us a better Oakwood?  Let’s tell that story!
About the project:
“2016 is proving to be a highly divisive year in national and local news.  Wright Memorial Public Library is proud to be Open to All, a place of unity no matter what is going on in the wider world,” said Jacqui Taylor, Youth Services Coordinator at Wright Library.

A Call for Artists and Writers of All Levels

  • Artists of all levels are invited to submit a proposal for a canvas. Selected artists will be invited to bring their submissions to life—using library-provided canvas to tell their story of Oakwood.  The canvases will be displayed at the Library for years to come.
  • Writers of all ages and abilities can submit a written work (poem, short essay, song, etc.). The Library will post selected works online and in a printed booklet.

A Call to the Entire Community: Together Oakwood Community Creation Day

  • All members of the community are invited to the Library on Dec. 4th to participate in a Community Creation Day of the Together Oakwood Project. The Library will provide supplies for community members to paint or write their own Oakwood story.  Selected canvases and text submissions from Community Creation Day will be added to the Together Oakwood Project.
Applications accepted Aug. 25 through Oct. 16.
