Iam Very thank because ur visit in the my website with title Kerry James Marshall’s Public Art Will Stay Put At West Side Library. Happy reading

After much criticism, the public painting “Knowledge and Wonder” by Kerry James Marshall won’t be auctioned off at Christie’s in New York City. The art was commissioned for the Chicago Public Library’s Legler Branch on the city’s West Side and was expected to sell for at least $10 million.

The 10-by-23-foot mural features black children standing together in a dream-like scene playfully looking at books. The piece was part of a city program to bring art into public buildings in 1995 and cost $10,000. The Bronzeville artist told the >Chicago Tribune he thought removing the piece from auction was “the right decision to make.”
