Surf's up for Snoopy at the Tompkins Square Library

In recent weeks, East Village-based artist Nina Bovasso has had a wall-length work titled "snoopies in the surf" on display on the second floor of the Tompkins Square Library

So why does she draw Snoopy? 
Perhaps reading in the news about Snuppy the Puppy, the first cloned dog, was an idea that offered numerous visual possibilities. Or that my first-ever opportunity to use my purchasing power was when Grandma Bovasso gave me $20 for my birthday, and I brought a large stuffed Snoopy plush doll. 
Today (Saturday!) is the last day for the exhibit ... and you can hear more from Bovasso this afternoon at 2 by the painting. The branch is at 331 E. 10th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
