Behind the Scenes Tour – Shaun Tan artwork from the State Library collection

21 February 2019 Perth Cultural Centre

To celebrate the Cicada exhibition, join State Library staff behind the scenes to see the Shaun Tan artwork held by the State Library in the Peter Williams Collection of Australian picture book art. Oil paintings, clay sculptures, notebooks, sketches and unpublished illustrations from books including Memorial (1999), The Lost Thing (2000), The Red Tree (2001) Rules of Summer (2013) and The Singing Bones (2015) provide a unique insight into Tan’s creative mind and artistic body of work.
