Exquisitely Connected Wonderland

Exquisitely Connected is inspired by the surrealist parlor game, The Exquisite Corpse. Participants contribute to a collective artwork without seeing what others have created. Connect with others in our community as we create our own Exquisitely Connected Wonderland art piece. Create your own 8x8 Alice in Wonderland themed artwork at home or in the library (kits are now available). Bring your finished piece back to the library by Oct. 31. Your piece will be scanned and added to the library’s connected art piece display in November.
