Call for dinosaur art, writing

Dec 09, 2013
Peter Proeller and Patty King created an Apatosaurus/Brontosaurus for Dinosaur Day 2011.

Rockland — Artists, writers and dinosaur enthusiasts age 3 and older are invited to submit up to two entries each for Rockland Public Library’s second Dinosaur Day, set for Saturday, Jan. 18. Drawings, paintings, stories and poems and sculpture and other creative media are all welcome.

All forms of art are appreciated, and all pieces will be displayed. The Dinosaur art is intended to encourage people of all ages to do research on prehistoric life and to put their knowledge and imaginations to work to produce creative versions of that life.

Submissions are being accepted through 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3. Submissions should be dropped off to Patty King at the Rockland Library, 80 Union St., during the library’s open hours. Included with submission, on a separate sheet, must be the artist or writer’s name, address, phone number and email address.

The library will take reasonable care to ensure the safety and security of items displayed or exhibited; however, it assumes no responsibility for the preservation or protection; and no liability for possible damage or theft of any items displayed or exhibited. Items will stay on display until the end of January.

Dinosaur Day will celebrate all things dinosaur. Participants will be able to join in a scavenger hunt, listen to special Roar! Storytime, take part in a dig, attend Chewonki’s “Scales & Tales” reptile show and more.
