This Week's Updates

Wood MS Artists at West End Library

Ms. Shepard's 7th grade art class has work on display now at the West End Library! The students' Agamograph project on the theme of Power and Identity is up until May 24th - make sure to stop by to see it.

The West End Library is at 788 Santa Clara Avenue. The library opening hours are

Monday: 12 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Tuesday & Wednesday: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Thursday & Saturday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Closed: Friday, Sunday, Holidays

What's an Agamograph?! It's a series of images that change at different angles. It's named after the Israeli artist, Yaacov Agam, who is known for his optical and kinetic art.

Many thanks to AEF's Art Across the Island for organizing the exhibit!
