The Art Kiosk Presents:
Kate Dodd 
"Icubator"
March 9 - April 6 
 
We are proud to have contributed to a new art installation in town! Incubator is composed of approximately 2,000 books, some of which are stacked, creating book "towers" supported by a "foundation" of books that celebrate women's roles in both fiction and non-fiction. The new commission was inspired by the artist's multiple res earch trips at Redwood City Public Library and current events. It includes a number of books from the library's collections on women's history! Join the Redwood City Improvement Association, the City of Redwood City and Fung Collaboratives, for a free public opening reception on Saturday, March 9 at 4 p.m. at the Art Kiosk located in Courthouse Square.
