On the Move with Eric Carle

*Dates subject to change

Planes, trains, and automobiles. Rocket ships and steamships. A horse? Of course! These are some of the ways people and animals move from place to place in Eric Carle’s picture-book illustrations. This exhibition is divided into themes of travel by land, air, and sea, and the artworks represent 15 different titles. Included are Carle’s familiar images from 10 Little Rubber Ducks to linoleum prints from The Boastful Fisherman to small collages from his early reader series of the 1980s.

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