The Power Of…
by Ta-coumba Aiken
at Minneapolis Central Library - Fourth Floor, Fireplace
Mosaic
Artist's statement: I believe that art can be used as a vehicle for enlightenment and change. Consequently, I create art to heal the hearts and souls of people by evoking a positive spirit. My paintings investigate the many layers of human existence. The need for shelter should and will be at the forefront of any society, and given Minnesota’s climate, it should be one of our top priorities. This work captures the essence of Home—past, present, and future.

The entrance to the Special Collections Department is the original carved overmantel from the Ladies Reading Room at the original Main Library on Tenth and Hennepin. When the Library moved to its location on Nicollet Mall in 1961, the mantle was relocated to the building and used to create a niche for Minerva, the goddess of wisdom. The mantle was moved to the new Central Library in 2006
