Ashley Bryan Center in Maine! Maybe next summer?
Anyhow, here are some picture from the museum:
|I love Granny Anika's song:|
"Mama loves peas,
Papa loves corn,
Baby loves beans
Sure as you're born.
Put in potatoes,
Granny loves yam,
Don't forget okra,
Beets and jam."
It also reminds me of Mr. Jim's vegetable plate.
|"I" is for Irene... and "If I could imagine the shaping of Fate, I would think of blackmen handling the sun." - Raymond Patterson (from ABC of African American Poetry)|
|Ashley's work features lots and lots of animals!|
|from Ashley's autobiography Ashley Bryan: Words to My Life's Song:|
"This is my story. Whether it be bitter or whether it be sweet, take some it elsewhere and let the rest come back to me."
|The Night Has Ears, one of my favorite Ashley Bryan books!|
And, because the High Museum is also featuring an exhibition of Andy Warhol's prints, I wanted to include this shot from the gift shop:
|"Art is what you can get away with."|
