Art Spot: Can you name the library branch where this public art is located?


  • Artist:  Claire Satin
  • Title: Alphastory
  • Medium:  Integrated Art - Installation with multiple components
  • Size: 11' x 17' mural component
  • Year Installed:  1998

Experience literary immersion when walking around this branch. Here’s what you will find: an Alice in Wonderland tile wall with a quotation, the history of letters and numbers, and a Braille translation of a quotation. “Suspended Band” above the library information desk includes a quotation from William Blake. “The Yellow Brick Road” 165-ft. processional walkway between the library and middle school shows a series of Roman alphabets, interspersed with historical alphabet images. “Hieroglyphic Walkway” from the parking lot into the library lobby shows 100-ft. tile paver design based on hieroglyphic and alphabet images. 

Come back next week for the answer!
