Tall Tales and Short Tales: The Art of Uri Shulevitz

The Carle is pleased to present Tall Tales and Short Tales: The Art of Uri Shulevitz, a retrospective of the acknowledged master in celebration of his 80th year. Organized by Curator Emeritus Nick Clark, the exhibition will comprise approximately 90 works surveying Shulevitz’s career as a picture-book artist and will include a selection of his independent art. Shulevitz garnered the Caldecott medal for his Fool of the World and the Flying Ship in 1969 and won Caldecott honors in 1979, 1999, and 2009—most recently for his How I Learned Geography, a poignant memoir of the trials of his youth and how a map fueled his curiosity and imagination. Working in a wide variety of media, the artist demonstrates remarkable versatility as he interprets an equally wide range of literature. An illustrated catalogue with an essay by Clark accompanies the exhibition.
