The Art of Ashley Bryan #292

Artist Ashley Bryan has been creating unique works since his earliest years growing up in the Bronx. Known for his award-winning children’s books like Beautiful Blackbird and Freedom Over Me, Ashley Bryan has connected with audiences of all ages. For this show, we traveled to Little Cranberry Island, off the coast of Mount Desert Island, to interview this 93-year-old artist in his home.

L/A Arts is paying tribute to Ashley Bryan during the months of April and May with its Ashley Bryan Days in LA events. On April 29 the Emerge Film Festival will screen a feature documentary by filmmaker Richard Kane about Bryan’s life and work. For more information go to: http://bit.ly/2oRUX8I
