Geometric Mural by Yetti Frenkel

New Young Adult Mural

Geometric Mural by Yetti FrenkelArtist Yetti Frenkel, who originally painted the natural scenes that decorate the Children’s Room in 2007, returned to the library this past month! She grew up in Lynn and now lives in Newburyport and has created murals for nine different public libraries, as well as numerous other works of public art. She has created several unique mosaics in the past and has combined that concept here with a jewel-toned painting technique. The design for the Young Adult area was inspired by the idea to make something fun, colorful, and geometric to celebrate the exciting and creative work found in the books and graphic novels there. Stop by to see this amazing new art in the library’s lower level!

About Yetti:
I love story-telling, and my artistic work often contains a narrative quality and implied story. For thirty-five years my inspiration was my home town of Lynn, Massachusetts, where I documented scenes of everyday life in the tradition of the Ash Can School. Other series include scenes of commuters on the subway, grooms at Suffolk Downs, and performers I knew when I worked for the Big Apple Circus. These images are created in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, and pastel.
