Teens Unveil Mural at Main Library Sunday

Courtesy photo - Devon Yee, a recent graduate of Alameda High, recently led a team of fellow students in producing a mural. She drew the concept sketch, presented the project before library officials and put together a team of artists to make it happen. The design incorporates an image of Alameda City Hall.

For the past month, a group of teenage artists have been hard at work at the Alameda Free Library. The teens designed and painted an entire mural themselves, despite having no prior mural experience.

Teen Librarian Matt Conciatori at the Alameda Free Library and Alameda High School art teacher Margaret Morrissey helped guide the project.

The artists, their families and the library will hold an unveiling ceremony this Sunday, June 22, at the Main Library Branch at 11 a.m.

The branch is located at 1550 Oak St.

“Their work demonstrates a project that unified Alameda teens and strengthened their connection to the library, and community as a whole,” said Conciatori.
