Seeking A State of Grace: The Art of Arnold Lobel

March 22 - June 15, 2008
East Gallery

In celebration of what would have been Arnold Lobel’s seventy-fifth birthday, The Carle organizes a retrospective of his illustrious career, which was woefully short. Only fifty-four when he died, Lobel created over seventy books and was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Fables (1981), two Caldecott Honors for Frog and Toad Are Friends (1971) and Hildilid’s Night (1972), and a Newbery Honor for Frog and Toad Together (1973). The exhibition provides an overview of the full range of his career, with considerable attention paid to his signature legacy—Frog and Toad. 

Support for this exhibition was provided in part by Harper Collins Children’s Books.
