Local artists were invited to develop unique, high quality, one-of-a-kind art pieces that reflected the “Art of Technology” theme.

A first, second and third place winner will be chosen in each class: First through fourth grade; Fifth through eighth grade; Ninth through twelfth grade; and Adult.

First place winners will receive $500 Visa gift cards and their artwork will be displayed in the Richard and Gina Santori Public Library of Aurora, set to open this spring in downtown Aurora. Second-place winners will receive $250 Visa gift cards, and third-place winners will receive $125 Visa gift cards.

Artists submitted pieces in a variety of media, including drawings, collages, photographs, paintings and mixed media. The winners of the competition will be announced in a press conference during the “First Friday” event in downtown Aurora on March 6 at If These Walls Could Talk, 32 S. Stolp Ave.

The Dunham Fund also is financing the creation of the “Dream Catcher,” an illuminated sculpture that portrays the written word from its earliest beginnings to the high-tech world of today. It will hang in the Santori Library Atrium. A sculpture for the plaza outside the new Santori Public Library’s west entrance also is being funded through The Dunham Fund.
