FOLLY FRIDAY: The Art of A MAD, WICKED FOLLY

There are several works of art woven into the storyline in A MAD, WICKED FOLLY.  I love to think about the meaning behind art, and so I chose works that helped me deepen the story’s themes  or emphasized what Vicky was feeling or experiencing.  So this Folly Friday I’m highlighting the art of A MAD, WICKED FOLLY. I don’t want to create any spoilers and I’d love for you to discover for yourself why I chose each painting or poster, so I’m not going to say anything more! But I will leave you with a quote from Vicky herself:

“Such art can awaken feelings inside us for which there are no words.”
