Into the Unknown: Sci-Fi Visions of the Future

How do science fiction stories give us a different perspective on our world? How do artists experiment with prophecy and imagine possible futures? On the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, artworxLA and Los Angeles Public Library celebrate the literature of ideas and change. Students will explore new discoveries in science and technology and play out visions of tomorrow–wheater they are familiar, otherworldly, dystopian, or nonconformist. Through the art-making process, we hope students ask themselves the question "What if...?" and find the adventures of reading for pleasure.
