Melanie's Art Exhibition * Brooklyn Central Library * So Grand
I installed my exhibition "ORDINARY INTO EXTRAORDINARY" in 28 showcase displays at Brooklyn Central Library Youth Wing, Grand Army Plaza. I am so honored.
My exhibition is from April 7 through June 13, 2009 and celebrates 20 years of being a published picture book author and illustrator. Original illustrations from seven of my picture books will portray New York City's urban communities. I also display examples of my picture book process.
BPL librarian and angel, Michael Santangelo adds sparkle to the showcases and helped with the installation.
Here I am installing original illustrations from MERMAIDS ON PARADE.
Job well done.
Curator Barbara Wing by the golden feet at the library's fabulous front entrance. Always a joy to work with, Barbara's good energy made the exhibition so much fun to create.
