Inspiring Minds: Creativity Night @ Yorkville Library

Wednesday, January 18, 2023

John Bauer was a Swedish artist and illustrator who created unique characters and fantastical worlds that

were inspired by the folklore, fairy tales, and mythology of Scandinavia. Even though he died over 100

years ago, he still inspires artists today - Jim Henson, Neil Gaiman, and countless other filmmakers, artists,

and authors have had their ideas sparked by Bauer's work. From October 1-December 31, you will be able

to browse a display about Bauer's life and work in the adult services section of the library. Just as Bauer

has inspired others, we hope his fun artwork inspires some Yorkville Library patrons too! Please come see

Bauer's work, because maybe you'll be inspired to create something of your own.

What could you create? Anything. A painting, drawing, sketch, sculpture, model, poem, story, puppet show,

a play, a comic book, a stuffed animal, a quilt... the possibilities are endless. Once you've created your John

Bauer inspired work, bring it to the Adult Services librarians. We will display your work, enter you for the

chance to win a prize, and you will be invited to attend this event - on January 18, 2023 - where all the other

creative Yorkvillians will get to share their work and see what one another created.
