Merritt bookstore would like to share the events we have planned for August. They are planned with children in mind but also with the adults who accompany and love them in mind as well. Included as well is an ongoing exhibit we have in our Upstairs Gallery Exhibition G.A. Mudge photographs of Marguerite Delacorte Memorial and Sophie Irene Loeb Fountain . This exhibition was part of our celebration of the 150 anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland.

Upstairs Gallery, Merritt Bookstore
Now through September 2015
A selection of G.A. Mudge photos are juxtaposed with Sir John Tenniel’s illustrations of the marvelous characters brought to life by Lewis Carroll In Alice in Wonderland. This exhibit gives insight into great products of the human imagination, how they feed the young of heart of all ages.
Wonderful illustrations, beautiful photographs, Lewis’s unfathomable imagination. This small exhibit provides a glimpse into two extraordinary sculptures in NYC’s Central Park which (among others) G.A. Mudge records with their relevant details. Including the name of their sculptors, benefactors as well as when and why they were placed in the park for the New York City community and all to enjoy.
Please join Merritt Bookstore in thanking Mudge for his book : Alice in Central Park- Statues in Wonderland. It is overdue, excellent and a desperately needed guide to the great public art in NYC’s Central Park.
A perfect guide for a day trip with someone young at heart…sculptures perhaps a stop at the zoo, or the carousel as well…
