Meow! Cats Walk in the World of Picture Books
January 29 - March 6, 2022
This exhibition focuses on cats overflowing with personality that appear in picture books.
Visitors can see original paintings and related materials from picture books, amounting to about 250 items on display from 15 pairs of authors and artists, ranging from well-known picture-book authors to young up-in-coming artists.
When we look at the original drafts (and sketches) that artists worked with directly, we find that the smudges, bleeds, and brilliance in color create depths that cannot be recreated in print, and we can also catch a glimpse of the artists' creative processes not found in the finished works, including handwritten notes and partially revised areas.
Please come get a sense for the appeal and richness to be found in picture-book expressions, and appreciate picture books in a way that differs from when reading them, all while enjoying some leisurely, laid-back time with cats.
The venue features a "cat post" where visitors can send messages to authors, a picture-taking area and workshop space, as well as a picture-book section where visitors can read the works on display.
