New art exhibits demonstrate disappearance of books

Two new exhibits in New Jersey show the future for schools. In the future everyone will turn to electronics instead of books for knowledge. One exhibit is at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton and the other is at the Visual Arts Center. The Exhibit at the Visual arts center is called "Bibliomania" made by Mary Birmingham. They both are extremely dedicated to books for art. The artists feel that books symbolizing knowledge is a great subject, because before we know it almost everything will depend on electronics. One of the pieces in the show at The Visual Arts Center is by Thomas Broadbent. His watercolor painting shows a large dusty stack of books that were staggering over a tiny blue bird. The piece was called "The Weight of Words".
