The Carle is pleased to announce that the West Gallery will be home to an exhibition of art from Eric Carle's beloved book, "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly," said the Sloth, published in 2002. The exhibition, called The Birth of a Book and A Museum will open in Amherst, Massachusetts on April 3, 2012, and continue until September 2, 2012. The exhibition will feature a selection of working draft "dummies," as well as several preliminary dust jacket designs and early versions of the book's pages. There will be accompanying activities in the Art Studio. The exhibition coincides with two very special anniversaries: both the book and the Museum are celebrating 10th anniversaries in 2012.
