MMAM: Waking Worlds: Wondrous Reads for Curious Minds
April 1 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The exhibition features original illustrations from three book projects; Mary Casanova’s Wake Up Island (University of Minnesota Press) and Hush, Hush, Forest (University of Minnesota Press) as illustrated by printmaker Nick Wroblewski, and World of Wonder: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments (Milkweed Editions) written by Aimee Nezhukumatathil and illustrated by Fumi Nakamura. Selections from all three books will be accompanied by wood carvings from the Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s collection of Leo and Mariylyn Smith folk art – a collection of sculptures informed by the whimsy and wonder of the Mississippi River marine environments – interspersed throughout the gallery.
