The University of Washington Allen Library presents the exhibition Lem’s Bestiary Illustrated by Daniel Mróz organized by the Seattle-Gdynia Sister Association and the UW Polish Studies Endowment Committee in collaboration with the UW Libraries and the Consulate General of Poland in Los Angeles. The main focus of the exhibition is collaboration between the writer and the artist and his drawings. The exhibition also includes videos and a display of Lem’s book from the UW Libraries Slavic collection.
This year is the 100th anniversary of Stanisław Lem (1921-2006), the famous Polish sci-fi author, essayist and social commentator. Daniel Mróz (1917-1993) was a graphic designer and illustrator first known for his covers and other works for the weekly “Przekrój” published in Cracow. He became famous for his drawings illustrating early editions of books written by Lem and by Sławomir Mrożek, who were both based in Cracow.
The exhibit is available at the north lobby / north entrance to the UW Allen Library during library hours.
