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.”
