[BKARTS] Inventing in Color at the Brooklyn Public Library



If you can get to Brooklyn (NY) before March 20 be sure and visit the
Brooklyn Public Library (Grand Army Plaza) where Inventing in Color, an
exhibition of handcrafted books that pay tribute to inventors of African
ancestry, is on view in the Balcony Cases on the second floor. Twenty-one
books by fifteen artists in New York City and New Jersey are featured.

You may recall that there was a similar show at the Mount Vernon Library and
the Center for Book Arts in 2003. This show led to the creation of Books in
Black, "..a collective of ordinary people who make extraordinary books."
The group has revisited the theme and created several new books covering
more inventors.

The show was curated by Ruth Edwards and she will be interviewed on the
radio this Sunday at 7 pm.  The program is Writers on Writing and the
station is WNYE (91.5 FM).
