Exhibition Highlights

About The Exhibition

Illustrations for children's books are a very special art form, and the only area of artistic expression created specifically with children in mind. Timed to coincide with the opening of ImaginOn, the Joe and Joan Martin Center, in fall 2005, this exhibition will celebrate the "land of make-believe," and the imaginative and accomplished works of art that have been created for the best children's literature. 

The exhibition displays works by some of the most respected and accomplished children's illustrators in the U.S. including Tomie de Paola, David Wisniewski, James Ransome, Gail Haley, Ashley Bryan and Peter Catalamotto. The collection spans from the early 1960s until the mid-1990s, and includes an impressive number of Caldecott Award winning artists and illustrations.

Organized by: The Mint Museums in collaboration with the Charlotte/Mecklenburg Public Library
