Myths and Monsters Call For Submissions

Silk Community Room Gallery! This exhibition will be on display from March 27 through April 25, 2021, and will be held in conjunction with the fourteenth annual NEA Big Read in Massillon. This year’s book selection is Circe by Madeline Miller, a reimagining of the story of Circe, sorceress and daughter of the sun god, Helios, in Greek mythology. Current public, private, parochial, and homeschool students are invited to submit their original artwork inspired by mythology or monsters for this exhibition!
