The newest exhibit at The Kaneko follows the art of storytelling through its many forms. As a distinctive human trait, storytelling is how we share and create meaning with one another.
Dave Richards, Dean of Library Services at UNO's Criss Library focuses on the way stories are shared and preserved through the various incarnations of libraries throughout history. In addition to the mini-documentary on the history of libraries (which can be viewed on Vimeo), Dean Richards has also provided a display of mechanisms for storytelling that while vital for their time, have now found their way into obsolescence.
The cave, like today's libraries, served to preserve and provide a place to access enduring stories of the human experience.
- Dave Richards
In addition to Criss Library's contribution, Storytelling will also feature illutrative work by Joe Nicholson, selections from the comic book collection of Todd Duncan, photography from the Durham Museum Archives and more.
Storytelling will be on display at 1111 Jones Street from June 3-August 27 between 11 A.M.-7 P.M. Tuesday-Friday, 11 A.M.-4 P.M. Saturday. Admission is free.
