Beauty in Reading - An Exhibit by Kamia Funchess and Mychel Russell-Ward


June 1st, 2012 - June 30th, 2012

Program Locations:

Photographer Kamia Funchess states, "I believe this generation does not understand the value of a great book and natural research. Through my photos I show a world where, despite ipods and macbooks, some people still participate. There is something about a good book, whether you are 5 or 60 that motivates you to do better in life, or just entertain you. My hope is to remind people that books are still viable." 

From the artist Mychel Russel-Ward "Sometimes the pieces develop meaning that was never intended at the time the first brushstroke touches the paper. In that way they often reveal to me the things that I do not see about what goes on in my inner life.

Join us in viewing photographs by Kamia Funchess and watercolors by Mychel Russel-Ward by and about readers and their books. 

Beauty in Reading will be on view at Mulberry Street Library through June 30, 2012.
