Very Eric Carle – Visiting Exhibit

 

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
