Fun for the whole family! Picture books introduce children to a love of art. Today’s picture book artists are some of the world’s most innovative visual artists, pushing boundaries with their use of both traditional and digital techniques. This juried exhibition showcases a broad array of styles and mediums and will captivate audiences of all ages. When you visit be sure to pop by our Pop-up Picture Book Shop, which features books and prints of artwork in the exhibition. Pick up a gift for yourself or someone you love!

 

Meet the artists from the exhibition: Join us for a free family friendly opening reception party July 27. Take part in our book readings, giveaways and art activities from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Followed by a more traditional opening reception (with free munchies and cash bar) from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Come for part or stay for the whole party.
