The 2008 Teen Anime Fest is today from 12-4:30 at the Figge Art Museum. The event consists of a wide variety of activities and is pretty much going to be a guaranteed good time. Pretty much. As in…pretty much for sure! Hope you can make it! The Figge is located at 225 W. 2nd St. in downtown Davenport. For more info call the library at 563-326-7832.
One feature of the Anime Fest will be the Manga Art Show & Reception. Area teens were invited to submit up to 2 pieces of manga/comic book style artwork. Here at DPL we had over 25 entries and all of the teen artists should be really really really proud of themselves! Plus, various public libraries on both sides of the river had lots of teens turn in submissions, as well! Hopefully the artists can make it to the Fest today to see their artwork on display. The following is a list of the DPL artists:
Rebekka Burks, Jacob Burns, Kristina Carter, Marcus Dammann, Chris DeNeve, Erik DeNeve, Bailey Hager, Tamara Koob, Matt Lathrop, Morgan Mahon, Christopher Mbakwe, Sari Moore, Mello Peterson, Taylor Richlen, Brogen Schieving, Devin Skaff, and Mimzy Storm.
Fantastic work everyone!
