Make Waves with the Regina A. Quick Arts Center and the Olean Public Library!

Join others at the library in creating a community mosaic of The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai sponsored by The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts and McDonalds.

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a famous woodblock print by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.  It was created in the early 1800s as part of a series of print, Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji.

Copies of The Great Wave off Kanagawa can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the British Museum in London, Claude Monet’s House in Giverny, France and The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University.

This print lends itself well to the water theme of our summer reading program this year.  Patrons of the Olean Public Library are invited to come in and create a 2 inch tile square to be included in the mosaic.

Visit the Reference Desk and ask one of the librarians to explain to you how to create your tile, then sit down at one of our tables and work on your masterpiece.

When you are finished at the library, why not visit The Quick Arts Center and visit the print in person!

Once the mosaic is finished, it will be on display in the library for all in the community to admire.  Express your creative side and “make some waves” at the Olean Public Library!
