I'M Very thank because ur visit in the my website with title Was Kerry James Marshall\'s Public Library Painting Too Valuable To Stay In A Library?. Happy reading

On the one hand, the almost absurdly valuable painting is no longer displayed on an upstairs wall at a Chicago Public Library branch, where anybody could get close to it.

On the other hand, the almost absurdly valuable painting is no longer displayed on an upstairs wall at a Chicago Public Library branch, where anybody could get close to it.

That’s the conundrum at the heart of the city of Chicago’s decision to sell off the Kerry James Marshall mural “Knowledge and Wonder,” which it commissioned from Marshall for $10,000 in 1995 and which now carries an estimated value north of $10 million.

The piece of public art painted for the West Side Legler Branch library, a monumental canvas depicting African-American children being enlightened by books, has appreciated like crazy as Marshall’s stature has grown.
