Speechless: The Art of Wordless Picture Books

David Wiesner has won six Caldecott citations, five of which were awarded for his tour-de-force wordless picture books. He’s now traded in his paints and brushes to curate Speechless, an exhibition celebrating other masters of the craft, including some of the artists who influenced his own remarkable career. In Speechless, Wiesner presents a 90-year history of graphic storytelling and examines how the wordless genre for children developed over time. Showcasing 21 seminal titles, the exhibition traces the form’s emergence from the shadows of mainstream publishing to its enthusiastic embrace by the public today.
