Opening night at Story Retold, by Annie Lee-Zimerle (Chakeres Interactive Art Lab) – At the Springfield Museum of Art.

Through printmaking and painting, Annie Lee-Zimerle retells popular narratives via personal experiences. While watching her children play dress-up she wonders what compels children to act as others and explores this play by positioning herself as popular characters.

Lee-Zimerle is an assistant professor and currently teaches drawing and printmaking at Cedarville University.
