A One Read Art Exhibit
Inspired by the folk myths and mysteries in this year’s One Read selection, Mid-Missouri artists 16 and older are invited to contribute work that plays with the ideas of storytelling, personal myth-making, exaggeration, secrets and superstitions. Cash prizes will be awarded for three winners, courtesy of Columbia’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The first place winner will receive $125, the second place winner will receive $75 and the third place winner will receive $50.
