Please join the Friends of the Print & Picture Collection for an exhibition tour, led by Judith Tannenbaum, curator of Word & Image: Contemporary Artists Connect to Fraktur. Word & Image is an exhibition which reinterprets and reframes traditional fraktur through a contemporary lens. Word & Image features the work of seven international artists: Marian Bantjes (Canada), Anthony Campuzano (United States), Imran Qureshi (Pakistan), Elaine Reichek (United States), Bob and Roberta Smith (United Kingdom), and Gert and Uwe Tobias (Romania/Germany). Each of the contemporary artists uses text or type as a visual component of their work to convey particular subject matter about his or her own culture and identity.

Meet in the Lobby of Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at 6:30 pm. Please RSVP at erefpix@freelibrary.org, by calling 215.686.5405, or through Facebook.
