Event Description
Sculptor Chido Johnson, who visits KU through the Department of Visual Art, brings his Love Library project along with him. In this ongoing project, the object of affection takes the form of books -- individual artists' interpretations of love concealed as romance novels. The installation employs the structure of a bookstore or library, with shelves containing romance novels, and chairs available to encourage individuals to comfortably sit and read.
