Canary Couch

Canary Couch

A reading chair upholstered in bright canary yellow, situated amid the stacks on this subterranean level, recalls the history of mining south of San José. The fragile birds in cages or "mineshaft canaries" that used to warn miners parallels the role of libraries as cultural institutions whose health and vigor testifies to the well-being of the societies that support them. This over stuffed, vinyl clad version of "Tweety Bird" contends that we can also stay healthy with humor and comfort.
