(Seguin) -- The Seguin Public Library is inviting you over this weekend as it prepares to unveil the artwork created with the help of over 85 young artists. The library is set to unveil the "It's a Beautiful World" community art project this Saturday.

The collaborative project, spearheaded by local sculptor Marika Bordes and graphic artist Carmen Davila, was designed to showcase the talent, imagination and visions of local artists from the Seguin area.

Library Director Jacki Gross says the project consist of 100 individual pieces all crafted together.

"We had a program back in November where we invited young artists in the community to come to the library, create a piece of artwork on a slice of wood that would then later be incorporated into a bigger piece of art that would be on display in the children's area. So we had over 85 young people come and create these little pieces. It was to be kind of what the library means to you type of thing. So we have those pieces, they were shellac so that they're all nice and shiny and beautiful. Then, they were put onto a larger composition that's kind of like a flower pot if you will. All these pieces, it's a three dimensional piece that are affix to this. It is the work of all these young artists that came in November. So we are doing the official unveiling of the artwork and inviting the whole community but in particular the young artist so that they can get recognition for their contribution," said Gross.

Gross says the three dimensional composition is a beautiful piece that will find a permanent home within the library.

"It's pretty big and as I said, it's three dimensional. There's wood. It's on a piece of a wood frame, but then the local sculpture, Marika Bordes, lent her talent to the project and kind of did the placement of all the artwork. So it is like a vase and these flowers are coming out of it. The flower, the blooms are the pieces of wood, the slices of wood that the kids did. Then all around the frame, we have other pieces as well," said Gross.

The unveiling of the project will begin at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. It will be followed by light refreshments and the recognition of those young artists who contributed to the art piece.
