 Artist Statement

"I want to bring some fun, humor and warmth to the patrons of the Library. It symbolizes the evolution of the human spirit from past to future, something new being born. This is parallel to the purpose of the libraries: to create the new based on, and using, the knowledge accumulated by prior generations."
