"A Child's Adventure in the Swedish Countryside: A Storybook Installation"

This interactive exhibition-cum-play-space was designed to help American youngsters connect with both classic and contemporary storybooks from Sweden. Created by artist and set designer Sarah Edkins, the installation features colorful murals, hanging umbrellas, elevated "grass"-covered platforms, a hut and a tent, and a faux lake made from mirrors. The effect is to immerse visitors in a profusion of literary worlds. Each area in the room relates to a different tale; the books are, of course, resting nearby.
