Freedom O Freedom
Lynne Farrington, curator and editor
In 2019 the Ashley Bryan Center donated the archive of the renowned artist, author, and humanitarian Ashley Bryan to the Kislak Center at the Penn Libraries. Beautiful Blackbird: The Creative Spirit of Ashley Bryan illuminates the life and work of this remarkable artist through personal remembrances, essays, and an exhibition drawing heavily on his extensive collection of personal papers at the Penn Libraries. It explores his century-long story, the story of one man-seeking his place in a world that did not always welcome him, finding himself through observation and expression, and using his creative gifts to make sense of his life and to help others to do the same. Printed in full color. University of Pennsylvania Libraries, 2023. 8.5 x 11 inches, softcover with French flaps, 164 pages. ISBN: 9780990448778
