Things Found Inside BooksSeptember 21, 2015
Created from things found inside books, the “Stories Within Stories” installation is a collection of treasures that tell the stories of moments and memories saved and forgotten. Representative of other times, places and lives, each piece invites imagination and gives a glimpse into another world. Somehow or another however, all of these items have found their way to this place, and are now connected to this space and to each other. We invite you to connect with them as well as their stories cross paths with your own.
