Simms Taback: Art by Design

To celebrate the gift of a significant part of Simms Taback’s archive, the museum is mounting an exhibition, Simms Taback: Art by Design. The exhibition will survey Simms’s eight major books, including his Caldecott Medal Book, Joseph Had a Little Overcoat, and his Honor Book, There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. Taback's irrepressible humor shines through in his colorful, beautifully crafted compositions, and important messages abound. This show is the second in an ongoing series highlighting the permanent collection and it will be accompanied by a sixteen-page illustrated brochure with an essay by Chief Curator, H. Nichols B. Clark.
