CANCELLED - Sights on Site: Friends Select School Exhibition
Now through Tue, March 31, 2020 9:00 P.M.
Parkway Central Library
Art students from all three divisions of Friends Select School explored Parkway Central Library and discovered the building’s amazing architecture, history, and resources. Students met with curators and librarians and created work based on their visits. They looked at early 20th century wordless novels and learned about Julian Abele, the Parkway Central Library's architect, in the Art Department, talked about Knee-Hi, with the Children's Literature Research Collection and pored over artist's maps of Philadelphia in the Map Collection. The students then used their discoveries as inspiration to create new works of art in their classrooms. This dynamic exhibition is on display in the 2nd Floor Galleries through the end of March.
Stop by the March 5th opening, Thursday, 5:00-7:00pm in the 2nd Floor West Gallery to look at the artwork and speak with the artists, teachers, and librarians.
