This Saturday, September 29th, I will be at the dedication of the Old Town Newhall Library with my temporary public art sculpture, "For the Love of Books". The event is from 10am to 4pm. The library dedication ceremony will be at 10:30. The library is located at the intersection of Lyons Avenue and Main Street in Newhall. 25400 Main Street, Santa Clarita, CA 91321. (661-259-0750)
"For the Love of Books" includes a 7ft tall book, a "reading chair" made out of books, and a mobile with current and future reading options as well as those for low vision readers. The mobile brings the height up to about 10 ft tall. Inside the book, on one page, are quotes about libraries, reading and books. The other side will have notes from the attending public regarding their feeling or thoughts about libraries, books and reading. I will have people reading all day for 15 minutes at a time.
If you would be able to read as part of this art piece, please send me an e-mail! I really could use more people, including children too!
