Christy Schneider

To Kill a Mockingbird

Artist: Christy Schneider

Banned/Challenged Book: To Kill A Mockingbird

Reason for Banning: Book contains racial content, profanity, and reference to rape

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I first read To Kill a Mockingbird as a teenager. It’s such a touching story, so vibrant and full of memorable characters and powerful issues. I incorporated some visual elements from the story into a graphic illustration, and created fabric-like patterns reminiscent of Americana to tie them together. The book evokes a particular color palette for me – black and white, hot summers of orange, and green tree leaves.
