Plunder The Influence is a collaboration initiated by artist Adriane Herman that examines physical manifestations and sources of influence. Sincere and ebullient thanks to the many generous individuals and one collaborative team who took time to document their shelves or stacks of books and to think and write about them for this context. (See "The Stacks" at right.)
This project was occasioned by The Storytellers, an exhibition curated by Henry Wolyniec at the Unum Great Reading Room at the University of Southern Maine's Glickman Library (January 24-March 12, 2011) and is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. (Thank you!)
