About the art

The curved wall of The Story Garden defines the 2nd floor entrance to the library and offers a glimpse into the magic of children’s literature.

Artist's statement

“In conceiving this project, I began with a series of questions that helped me frame my collaboration with the Library, the children, and the space itself. I see this Story Garden as a dynamic work that comes to life with the involvement of those who use the space. Each person or group can explore, in a personal way, what a story is, where stories come from, and what they mean to us.”
