Green Revolution

On display February - April 2016

Go green with Green Revolution! Come explore how you and your family can be more eco-friendly with a new Smithsonian eco-zibit, made from recycled and repurposed materials. Green Revolution focuses on important environmental issues such as alternative energy sources, green building, recycling, and waste management.


This version of Green Revolution is based on an exhibition originally created by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, and its Black Creativity Council and is made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. 




Provo residents of all ages are invited to submit works of art for the Provo City Library’s annual amateur art show. The purpose of this juried show is to encourage and cultivate the creativity of Provo’s amateur artists (an amateur artist is someone who does not derive a steady income from, or teach, art). We accept entries in 2-D and 3-D visual art, including (but not limited to) paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, ceramic, glass, and metal art.  Prizes will be awarded in the following age-based categories:

  • Teens (ages 13-18)
  • Adults (ages 18 and above)


  • Entrance in the show is limited to Provo residents.
  • No more than 3 entries per participant. Entry in the show does not guarantee acceptance to the show.
  • Art works must not depict nudity, extreme violent content, or use harsh language.
  • Art works may not contain perishable materials or glitter.
