Best Reasons To Go To DUMBO This Week – Part 1

Why is it so cool to go to DUMBO this week?  To check out the new Picture Book Art: A Women’s History Month exhibition at SuperFine restaurant and gallery on Front St!  I stopped by the opening tonight and it was great to see past professor Pat Cummings, as well as other female illustrators from the BK, show off their latest books and original artwork.  The other five women are Selina Alko, Melanie Hope Greenberg, Aileen Leijten, and Meghan McCarthy, and they’ll all be doing various readings and signings throughout the month.

So if you can’t make it to the gallery to see the show (through March 14th), make sure to support a local Brooklyn bookstore – and local children’s book illustrators! – and attend one of these events:

  3. Hi – I am one of the owners at Superfine and I wanted to thank you for the write up. I love bringing people together, we started this project to net work art, food, music, visual installations and community. It is at installations like this author-illustrator’s show that lifts and adds to the vision! A big Thank you to Melanie for curating the show and to all of the artist!
