2013 Softcover: 46 illustrations Published by Rhodeworks on the occasion of the exhibition Paries Pictus at Lehmann Maupin Gallery
Robin Rhode's Paries Pictus Activity Book supplements the site specific wall drawing intervention of the same title. For this exhibition, Rhode applied twenty-one vinyl graphics to the gallery walls and invited a group of first graders to participate in an educational wall drawing experience. Working closely with groups of two, Rhode instructed the children to color in the geometric designs using the oversized oil pastels and graphite crayons included in the exhibition. Many of Rhode's geometric shapes and activities from the installation, such as "Connect the Dots", are replicated in the Paries Pictus Activity Book for art enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy.
