"I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan, whose art has been a beacon of light in a much needed world where people of all ages can enjoy the message of hope and joy that we see in graphic form. We learn and laugh with the characters his puppets present and we rejoice when seeing the colors that comprise his beautiful paintings. Ashley’s art lives on in our minds even when it is not before us."
David Driskell, Artist/Curator/Scholar
