Eric Carle on CBS This Morning

Today, CBS This Morning aired a wonderful segment on Eric Carle. In perfect timing for the 45th anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar's publication, Mo Rocca interviewed Eric Carle here at The Eric Carle Museum and also at Eric Carle's personal art studio. If you didn't catch it this morning, you can watch the segment online and see how Eric Carle got his start as an artist, see the first incarnation of The Very Hungry Caterpillar as Willy the Worm, watch Eric Carle create an original collage with his now-iconic tissue paper style, and yes, even see the colorful bathrooms of our museum! This photo Mo Rocca put up on twitter of Eric Carle showing off the colored tiles (and the urinal!) in the bathroom cracks me up!

Thanks for visiting, Mo Rocca and CBS!
