Tall Tales and Short Tales: The Art of Uri Shulevitz

March 14 - June 14, 2015
East Gallery

This exhibition comprises 90 works surveying Uri Shulevitz’s picture book career. Shulevitz garnered the Caldecott Medal for Fool of the World and the Flying Ship in 1969 and won Caldecott honors in 1979, 1999, and 2009—most recently for How I Learned Geography, a poignant memoir of the trials of his youth and how a map fueled his curiosity and imagination. Working in a wide variety of media, Shulevitz demonstrates remarkable versatility as he interprets an equally wide range of literature.
