BPL Presents Scoring the Stacks, a participatory public art project by Kameelah Janan Rasheed inviting all to rediscover learning and the library through guided wandering and play.
The project will feature a series of performance scores and visual art throughout the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central branch as a means to experiment with different modes of learning and unlearning. A commissioned 120-foot site-specific photomural on the balcony of the Library’s Grand Lobby will introduce visitors to the Scoring the Stacks experience.
Opening Event – Saturday, January 12, 2–4 pm
Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library, Grand Lobby
