FAIR School + Minneapolis Athenaeum

Title: Untitled

Location: 80 South 8th Street

On display until: September 8, 2017

The Minneapolis Athenaeum and the Fair School Downtown have collaborated with 85 students and staff at the 4th Floor Special Collections of the Downtown Hennepin County Library. Engaging students under the instruction of Michael Gaughan with field trips and exposure to rare books and manuscripts, students focused on copies of Aesop’s Fables spanning 300 years. The art displayed here is the result of the student’s interpretations through collaborative art-making.

Special thanks to Bailey Diers and Staff at the 4th Floor Special Collections, HCLIB and the Board of Directors of the Minneapolis Athenaeum.
