I've always been fond of libraries. When I was in high school, we had to work for three hours a week on campus. I worked in the library. We also had to complete several hours of community service as a graduation requirement, and so I worked in my neighborhood library. At one point, I even considered going back to school to get a degree in Library Science. Now that I've started working on a research-intensive fiction project, I've come to rely on the library as a source of research materials. And so I am honored to also have my artwork on display there. The library I'm talking about is the Harold Washington Library, the main library of the Chicago Public Library system.
You can find my paintings on the 8th floor, which is where they keep the art books. All of the paintings are in a glass case near the elevators.
I will be giving an artist talk there tomorrow. It will be held on the 7th floor, in the Chicago Authors Room.
Here's more information:
Saturday, March 30th, 2 p.m.
Harold Washington Library
400 S. State Street
Chicago Authors Room, 7th floor
And if you can't make it to the artist talk but still want to see the art, it's on display until April 26th.
