Exhibition: Cicada by Shaun Tan

Acclaimed artist and writer Shaun Tan’s CICADA tells the story of cicada who works in an office, dutifully toiling day after day for unappreciative bosses. One day cicada goes to the roof of the building and something extraordinary happens... Be amazed by this exhibition of original artwork, sculpture and draft illustrations from CICADA, a tale which resonates with older children and adults alike.

Free exhibition. Open during library opening hours.
