Picture books instill in children a sense of awe, magic, and wonderment, but who inspires the illustrators themselves--the people who bring incredibly imaginative worlds to life? Organized by two prominent figures in the field, Tony DiTerlizzi and Mo Willems, this exhibition gives visitors a peek into the minds and motivations of an array of talented artists working today. Visit The Carle to find out who inspires Tony and Mo, as well as Sophie Blackall, Sandra Boynton, Ashley Bryan, Eric Carle, Bryan Collier, Marla Frazee, Laurie Keller, Loren Long, Patrick McDonnell, Yuyi Morales, Kadir Nelson, LeUyen Pham, Jerry Pinkney, Robin Preiss Glasser, Judy Schachner, Lane Smith, and--with a special contribution from his foundation--the late Maurice Sendak.
