“The American Library,” an installation by British artist Yinka Shonibare, was a major piece commissioned by the FRONT International. Shown in Brett Hall at the main branch of the Cleveland Public Library downtown, the work consisted of 6,000 volumes covered with colorful African wax cloth in which the names of U.S. immigrants were printed. The work was a cultural literacy test to see how many of the names a viewer recognized. Photo: Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer
