This event is free and open to the public. Join the CPGC and Deborah Ahenkorah BMC '10 for an exhibition of illustrations from The Golden Baobab Prize.
This show features artwork from nine Ghanaian fine artists and graphic designers, Hawa Nikoi Olai, Enoch Yaw Mensah, Nana Hene Koduah, Peter Oti Asamoah, Elkanah Kwadwo Mpesum, Ernest Cobbinnah, Andrew Adote, Jonathan Kwegyir Aggrey, and Sela Kodjo Adjei, who won coveted places in Golden Baobab's first ever Children’s Illustration Workshop.
