#ColorOurCollections goes Underwater

By February 1, 2018September 16th, 2023No Comments

We’re exploring humans, health, science in watery spaces for this year’s #ColorOurCollections event.  

From February 5-9, the Wangensteen Historical Library is joining other special collections from across the country to share color-able works from its rare books collection.

Our 2018 coloring book selections are inspired by the Underwater exhibit that is currently on display at the Wangensteen Historical Library and online.  

Watch for new coloring pages each day

We will unveil one coloring page each day with from the depths of the ocean. Check back for your chance to create an inky octopus or decorate mythical sea creatures.
