Gallery Walk – Children’s Book Art

Show This To Everyone

Members: FREE; Nonmembers: $6 adults, $5 seniors, $4 children

Each year, the Society of Illustrators creates a juried exhibition of the best illustration for children’s books produced in the United States. The winners’ original artwork is exhibited to highlight their remarkable contributions to the world of children’s literature. As a complement to these remarkable pieces of art, the VHS has selected more than two dozen books from its own collection that feature unique illustrations from the past 150 years. This gallery walk will explore the efforts of contemporary illustrators to bring stories to life for children, investigate how illustrators from the past used new techniques to embellish children’s books, and examine how books targeted to young audiences have evolved over the past century.
