Edgebrook Branch hosts an Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month art exhibit through the month of May featuring artist Shane Tolentino.
Shane Tolentino is a Filipina-American artist and first-generation immigrant. She is currently a Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration student at Columbia College Chicago and primarily creates detailed traditional illustrations with watercolor, pen and sometimes pressed flowers. Driven by her love for the natural world and antique medical diagrams, she enjoys exploring elements of nature, animals and the human body through her art in order to show how they conflict but cannot exist without each other. When she’s not on campus, one can find her sketching her surroundings, sitting by Lake Michigan or walking through local forest preserves.
