Very Eric Carle – Visiting Exhibit
Saturday, September 22- Friday, January 11
Step into the pages of your favorite books by Eric Carle in this play-and-learn exhibit: Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit. Carle’s classic “Very” series, all illustrated in his hand-painted tissue paper collage technique, introduces five special insects who take journeys of discovery. Each story is a testament to Eric Carle’s love of nature, his respect for the emotional lives of children, and his recurring themes of friendship, creativity, and the power of imagination. Visitors will:
• Become the Very Hungry Caterpillar as they follow his path
• Weave a web with the Very Busy Spider
• Find their light with the Very Lonely Firefly
• Make the Very Clumsy Click Beetle flip and jump
• Compose a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket
• Create artwork using many of Eric Carle’s materials and techniques
• Enjoy a gallery of prints from Eric Carle’s “Very” book series
