July Art Show: David Macaulay

David Macaulay: selected drawings and sketches DM7

Macaulay has written and/or illustrated numerous books, including the international best seller, The Way Things Work. His books have sold more than three million copies in the United States, and his work has been translated into a dozen languages. This exhibit of images from eight of David Macaulay’s books offers a glimpse of his “draw ‘til you drop” work process conveyed through preliminary sketches and finished art created between 1982 and 2010. According to the artist, the books represented in the exhibit “range from the history of architecture and the workings of technology to aspects of the human body, the decline of society, and why a chicken once crossed a road. This traveling exhibition on view at the Library for the month of July, is made possible with support from the Vermont Arts Council.
