Year of Wonder artist

The Big Wonder

Summer Year of Wonder artist Erin Shigaki (she/they) is a yonsei (fourth-generation) Japanese-American artist who creates work that is community-based and focused on BIPOC experiences. Erin's piece for our summer theme, the Big Wonder, captures the adventurous, free spirit of long summer days. Stop by your branch to pick up a postcard version of their work or download one to print and color yourself.
