Many libraries count works by authors like Joyce, Beckett and Kafka in their collections. From July 1 until August 30, the D.C. Public Library will highlight these and other literary giants as interpreted by the late Swedish artist and sculptor Carl Kohler. The exhibit will showcase Kohler’s work with oil and ink collage and his experiments with expressionists techniques on subjects found in the worlds of literature, music, dance and theater.
