A series of drawings by the author Walter Mosley will be on display in NYU's Kimmel Center Windows Gallery 24 hours a day through Thursday, Aug. 1. The 18 images collectively called "Alien Script" are accompanied by an excerpt from Mosley's book "Devil in a Blue Dress," printed in nine different languages.

“This ‘Alien Script’ has become my bid for art, my exploration in the language(s) of line, form and color; unruly textures and songs of dark and light,” Mosley told NYU.
