Eric Carle and Friends: What’s Your Favorite Color?

Everyone has a favorite color. Some last a lifetime, others change from day to day. Eric Carle’s newest publication, What’s Your Favorite Color?, poses the age-old question to fifteen famous children’s book artists. Each responds with a unique illustration and a personal story. Carle’s original collage art is paired with the various color choices of Lauren Castillo, Bryan Collier, Mike Curato, Etienne Delessert, Anna Dewdney, Rafael López, William Low, Marc Martin, Jill McElmurry, Yuyi Moralies, Frann Preseton-Gannon, Uri Shulevitz, Philip. C. Stead, and Melissa Sweet.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Hsin-Yi Foundation.
