THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Folks can support art and literacy this month in Thomasville.

This year's annual FLAUNT kicks off Friday night with an art auction, exhibition, and the release of the secret book library officials hope the entire community will read.

33 artists will also flock to the city of Roses to create works based on this "One Book" and literacy awareness.

"We have paper mache installations all over today and little free libraries. Thanks to Broken Chains Ministries and Lowe's. Junior Service League is here to greet our artists and we hope everybody comes out for an amazing event," said Adult Program Director Darlene Crosby Mathis.

The artists' designs will be judged for a chance to win $1,000, a local magazine spread, and an exhibition at the Thomasville Center For Arts.
