This past summer ECRL ran a Kids Design Art contest.  Children ages 4-10 were invited to enter a special contest to have their drawing turned into a glass sculpture by local glassblower, Anthony Michaud-Scorza.  Over 150 entries from our 14 branch libraries were turned in.  One drawing from each branch was chosen and will have their drawing turned into a glass sculpture this fall.  The following children were chosen as winners:  Aitkin – Savannah Watson; Cambridge – Emily Ruyman; Chisago Lakes – Sydney Barnick; Hinckley – Madelyn Churchill; McGregor – Emma Arnold; Milaca – Tucker Anderson; Mille Lacs Lake – Priscilla Elizabeth Bonilla; Mora – Mattea Van Hale; North Branch – Caleb Thyng; Pine City – Billy Brown – Princeton – Griffin Sager; Rush City- Hunter Fuller; Sandstone – Nevaeh Sedillo; and Wyoming – Kirsten Swanson.  The winners ranged from ages 5-10. 

The winners will get their picture taken with their individual glass sculpture and be invited to the glassblower’s studio to observe the art of glassblowing.  A brochure including all of the drawings and the glass designs will also be produced.  The 14 sculptures will also travel to each of the 14 ECRL branches for a display and Mr. Michaud-Scorza will give a presentation on glassblowing.  The event is planned for February 2014.  The event is funded with Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
