Seeking A State of Grace: The Art of Arnold Lobel

In celebration of what would have been Arnold Lobel’s seventy-fifth birthday, the Museum has organized a retrospective of his illustrious career. Although his career was woefully short—he was only fifty-four when he died—Lobel created over seventy books and was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Fables (1981); two Caldecott Honors for Frog and Toad Are Friends (1971) and Hildilid’s Night, written by Cheli Duran Ryan (1972); and a Newbery Honor for Frog and Toad Together (1973). The exhibition will provide an overview of the full range of his career with considerable attention paid to his signature legacy—Frog and Toad.
