Drawn in Brooklyn (Second Floor Balcony Cases)

September 21, 2010 - January 23, 2011
Central Library, 2nd floor Balcony Cases
Drawn in Brooklyn (Second Floor Balcony Cases)

In the balcony cases, you will discover hand-made creations that inspire the artwork of three illustrators: Aileen Leijten, Yunmee Kyong and Sophie Blackall.

Leijten and Kyong turn to child-like objects, like dolls and papier mâché animals. Blackall draws inspiration from an antique scrapbook she found, made by strangers in previous generations.
