Gray Matter: David Macaulay’s Black and White

The Carle is pleased to announce it will host an exhibition of the original art from David Macaulay’s Caldecott award-winning Black and White. The exhibition which will be on view from May 19 to November 29, 2015 is a partial celebration of the 25th anniversary of the book’s publication. Heralded as one of the first post-modern picture books where a unified linear narrative was rejected, the book comprises four possible stories arranged in four panels per page which the reader can read according to their preference. In his acceptance speech, Macaulay praised the committee for its choice of such a seemingly unorthodox book. The visitor will be able to gain a deeper understanding of Macaulay’s process through the wealth of preliminary material.
