Shannon from Greenfield Library recommends:

Sue Johnson: The Alternate Encyclopedia
published by the Tweed Museum of Art, University of Minnesota – Duluth
709.24 J637t (Find it in Greenfield Open Stacks)

Sue Johnson’s work is part traditional art and part exhibition design. She blends her paintings and prints with found objects and museum displays, creating new meanings for both her original work and the found objects. Johnson is interested in how we organize and exhibit nature – and how we desperately try to remove ourselves from nature. In the end, though, she always finds us in the natural world with wonderful touches of humor.

To see more of Johnson’s work, search the library catalog for Johnson, Sue as author.
