  • I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle

    Eric Carle

    The creator of more than seventy books, Eric Carle combines winsome stories and exuberant collages that appeal to young readers and adults alike. The exhibition presents original artwork spanning five decades of Carle’s picture-book career. On view are illustrations ranging from his 1967 collaboration Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  to Friends, his heartwarming story published in 2013, and many familiar titles in between.

    While Carle’s stories are charming, they’re layered with information too. As children read his books about animals, families, and fables, they also learn their colors, numbers, and letters. Carle makes learning accessible and fun—and in the process, he invites children to fall in love with books. I See a Story  celebrates Carle’s contributions to art and children’s literature.

    Organization and Support
    Generous support for this exhibition is provided by The Lettie Pate Evans Foundation and the Inaugural Grandparents Circle of Support: Spring and Tom Asher, Jane and Dameron Black, Lucinda W.
