Exploring Library Way: the intersection of public art & literature

June 1, 2013

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, South Court Classrooms
Andrews/LeFevre Studios

Andrews/LeFevre Studios, a NYC-based public art studio will lead a tour and discussion of Library Way, a series of 96 illustrated bronze panels installed along two blocks in the sidewalks of 41st Street between Park and Fifth Avenue leading to The New York Public Library's iconic Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Each features a quotation about literature chosen by librarians from across the country.

Artists Jennifer Andrews and Gregg LeFevre of Andrews/LeFevre Studios will lead a tour of the series and explain the various processes that went into creating this public artwork. The tour will conclude at the Library, where audience members will be able to participate in a follow-up discussion and find out more about the text selection process. We will meet on the steps of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 2pm.
