A Portrait of Greta Thunberg

On view through Oct. 25 in the Princeton Public Library lobby.

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg’s advocacy on matters related to climate change has been an inspiration to many, particularly young people who want to make a difference in the world. She has received many awards and in December, 2019, Time magazine named Thunberg Time Person of the Year 2019.

Princeton artist Andre Veloux, who creates detailed portraits and other works of art from Lego, has recently completed a portrait of Greta as part of his Icon Series. The library will display this portrait in our front lobby as part of its programming for the 2020 Princeton Environmental Film Festival. Watch a video about the artist’s process in creating this piece. Drop in any time the library is open to view the portrait. The library has created a resource list with materials for all ages to learn more about Greta and the topic of climate change.
