Peter Sís: The Wall; Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain

An exhibition of illustrations from an award-winning book by Peter Sís, a Czech illustrator based in New York, providing a highly personal and imaginative account of life behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Through annotated illustrations, journals, maps, and dreamscapes, Peter Sís shows what life was like for a child who loved to draw, proudly wore the red scarf of a Young Pioneer and believed whatever he was told to believe.
