Jump into Books Art Show: Children’s Book Illustration
July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for the Opening Reception of our Summer Exhibition Jump into Books: Children’s Book Illustration!
Even before children learn to speak, they are enthralled by the world around them… lights, colors and sounds in graphical motion. Children’s books play an important supporting role in shaping a child into the adult they will become. As parents patiently teach language to their kids, they reach for the illustrations in baby books to connect a word to a picture. With their curiosity piqued, children devour picture books and simple stories, while connecting to their daily routines. As they grow, so do the illustrations, from showing the obvious to showcasing new ideas. These images also do the work of opening a Pandora’s box of imagination and concepts for them.
Opening Reception: July 21 7:00 – 8:30pm
Dates of the Exhibition: July 18 to August 26
Jurors: Rashad Malik Davis and Kelly Lan
