Batik Hangings

The interior of the children’s section is enlivened by long narrow panels of colorful batik cloths created by Frankfort artist, Doris Thurber. Thurber’s theme is exploring the arts, and the panels represent music, dance, visual art, and literary arts. The fifth panel depicts the process of creating batik, because it seemed important to Thurber to include this educational component. Thurber sees this art as her legacy, her own colorful footprint in the world.
