Emily D Library Window Art
This month's library window art is quite the departure from our usual post-it-note art (usually video game themed). This month's window art is a painting of a poem!
A very talented senior artist, Rena Gascho, has wanted to paint the library windows this school year. We talked about this at length and finally the perfect opportunity arose: our county's Big Read focusing on Emily Dickinson. Rena took home a book of Emily Dickinson's poetry, reading and poring over poem after poem in search of one she wanted to portray through her artwork.
She chose the first stanza of poem 159 (409):
They dropped like flakes, they dropped like stars,
Like petals from a rose,
When suddenly across the lune
A wind with fingers goes.
Thank you Rena so much for your beautiful artwork!
