Monster Misunderstood

Art Inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

bga-frankenstein2-announcement

 

At the Belmont Public Library

October 1 to November 17, 2018

The BGA’s “Monster Misunderstood” exhibit is in collaboration with the Belmont Public Library’s One Book One Belmont town-wide read of Frankenstein. “Monster Misunderstood” is the featured inaugural show of the BGA’s new gallery partnership with the library. Artists have creatively interpreted Mary Shelley’s classic novel.

With themes that include nature, science, identity, prejudice, isolation, alienation and family, Shelley’s Frankenstein–though originally published 200 years ago–still has a resonance to the many difficult issues that face our world today.
