Pan Am Art Exhibit at Library

Book love
Written by Patti Foley


One year later, the spirit of the Pan Am Parapan Am Games continues to be felt throughout our great community of Caledon. Oh yes, it’s quieter now for sure: the torch relay has been run, the applause has dimmed and the crowds have dispersed, but don’t be fooled, because the essence of those Games – sport excellence, personal sacrifice and community pride – is alive and well in our town.

Caledon Public Library is proud of our community’s contribution to the Games and is pleased to announce that the Albion Bolton Branch is currently displaying more than a dozen Pan Am inspired works of art. Designed by local artists as part of the Town of Caledon’s Viva Upcycle Art display, this creative initiative transformed Pan Am street banners into something new and different.

In addition to the art display, all 7 branches have bound copies of a book featuring all the winning entries of our Pan Am Style Short Story Contest. These art pieces and short stories celebrate the spirit of the games and have created a legacy that the library is honoured to preserve. Please take a moment to drop by the library and remember the wonder of the Games.
