Join the Katonah Museum of Art for this exhibit curated by Leonard Marcus and based on his book Storied City:
Storied City: New York in Picture Book Art
In the Learning Center and Project Gallery
October 2 – December 31, 2011
New York has long held special appeal for the illustrators and writers of children’s books, both as a place to live and as a setting for their tales. Storied City displays original art from more than thirty-five picture books that examine iconic structures, diverse neighborhoods, ethnic life, urban transportation, and city parks. The illustrators include seven Caldecott Medal winners, several artists long associated with The New Yorker magazine, and many other leading illustrators from the children’s book world.
