Mt. Pleasant Library is going to exhibit several of Megan Coyle’s large animal collages that were inspired by the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. All of Coyle’s collages are made entirely from magazine strips using a technique she calls “painting with paper.” The show exhibits a variety of animal species – from lemurs to hippos to meerkats.
The show is being funded by Day Eight, a nonprofit that focuses on the delivery of innovative community arts programming in the District of Columbia. In conjunction with the exhibit, Coyle will run two collage workshops, one for children and youth, and another one for adults and seniors.
The exhibit opens on October 17th, 2013 and runs until the 31st.
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 17th, 2013 from 7:00p.m. – 8:00p.m.
