Arts Calendar: Literary Arts
Celebrate the launch of Brattleboro author Ann Braden’s middle-grade novel The Benefits of Being an Octopus. This family-friendly party will also serve as a benefit for the Women’s Freedom Center.
|Location:||Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Brattleboro|
Internationally recognized author and illustrator David Macaulay will exhibit images from eight of his books, including preliminary sketches and finished art created between 1982 and 2010. According to the artist, the books range from the "history of architecture and the workings of technology to aspects of the human body, the decline of society, and why a chicken once crossed a road." He says that the works "represent a tiny sliver of the vast amount of flotsam left in the wake of each book.”
The artist will give a brief talk at the opening reception. The show will remain on display through November 2.
|Time:||9/14/18 5:00pm - 7:00pm|
