The Main Library is participating in The Great Steubenville Eggsibition now through May 14. Visit us and the 17 businesses in downtown Steubenville that are displaying these beautifullly decorated eggs painted by local artists. The eggs were created by the Nelson's Fine Art and Gifts- the same family business that created the popular life-size Nutcrackers.
Pysanky Egg Decorating Demonstration on Saturday, April 29 at 11 a.m. - Therese Nelson from Nelson Fine Art & Gifts will talk about The Great Steubenville Eggsibition project, the history of these beautifully decorated eggs and demonstrate how to create one. This skillful art is a Ukrainian tradition believed to have started around 4000 BC. Afterward, the audience is welcome to decorate an egg using paints found around the house. Registration required by calling the Main Library.
