Eric Carle Under the Sea

September 7, 2019 - September 6, 2020
West Gallery

This exhibition showcases original art from 11 Eric Carle picture books, including his popular titles A House for Hermit Crab (1987) and Mr. Seahorse (2004). On view were penguins in arctic waters and jellyfish in tropical seas, along with playful dolphins, seals, turtles, and whales. There were also Carle’s illustrations of mythological sea creatures—mermaids, leviathans, and the legendary kraken. A reading rowboat and an immersive puppet stage provide inspiration for creative play. 

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