Best of Elementary Art Show. A celebration of childhood and creativity. March 11 - April 6, 2022.


#A Showcase of Wonder, Imagination

Libraries and discovery go hand-in-hand. A great book can spark a lifetime of curiosity. And nothing quite beats that look of awe and surprise on a child's face the first time they walk into a library... All they have to do is use their imagination and worlds of possibilities await them!

#Join Us

The annual Best of Elementary Art Show is a celebration of childhood, creativity, and the fantastic work of students in the visual art programs at Duval County Public Schools. Starting Friday, March 11, one or more pieces of artwork from every elementary school student will be put on display for the public at most of library locations throughout the City. Following the library art show, a virtual exhibition will be available to share and enjoy.

#Library Locations

The show runs through April 6 at the Main Library. Join us on Wednesday, April 6 for Art Walk. We'll be open until 8:45 p.m. for the festivities! The Main Library is across the street from James Weldon Johnson Park, one of Art Walk's three major hubs.
