Wordless Storytelling with Balint Zsako

Artists & Authors
Free with Museum admission

How do you tell a story without using a single word? This was the challenge artist Balint Zsako set for himself when creating Bunny & Tree—a 184-page wonder of purely visual storytelling. In this artist talk, enter the wondrous world of wordless books! Balint will share his path into the arts and publishing, his creative process in illustration and gallery work, and his approach to crafting visual narratives. After his presentation, the floor will be open for audience questions, as we hope to make this talk as engaging and interactive as possible.

Bunny & Tree is a gorgeous, sweeping story of adventure and friendship that is nearly 200 pages long… and entirely WORDLESS! Described as a “visual tour de force” by Publishers Weekly, “mesmerizing” by Kirkus, and “endearing and uplifting” by the Wall Street Journal, Bunny & Tree is Balint’s first book and named one of the six most promising debuts of the season by Publishers Weekly. A book signing will immediately follow the presentation and Q&A, so stick around to meet Balint, receive a special handmade bookmark, and get your copy of Bunny & Tree personalized with an exclusive stamp and signature!
