April: Backyard Colors

Orland Park Community Exhibit of Art and Poetry

We asked you for your artwork and poetry and you did not disappoint!
The response to our call for nature-themed submissions to the Backyard Colors virtual exhibit was tremendous.
We received art and poetry from library patrons and community members ranging in age from 6 to 86.
Please enjoy this special collection of community-wide creativity. What a fabulous way to welcome Spring.
