Eric Carle: From A to Z

September 15, 2015 - March 20, 2016
West Gallery

For more than fifty years, Eric Carle’s picture books have been internationally recognized for their vibrant images and distinct collage techniques. His stories are charming, but they’re layered with learning too. As children read Carle’s books about animals, families, and fables, they also learn their colors, numbers, and letters. 

Carle recognizes the creative and inquisitive nature of children and he wants to—in his own words—“show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.” This exhibition introduces the ABCs of Carle’s own colorful career. It explores his themes, personal interests, and artistic techniques. Some of his most familiar characters are showcased alongside artworks on view for the first time. 

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