Imagine! The art of the picturebook at the Columbus Museum of Art

Opening at the Columbus Museum of Art, on June 20th until November 9th, Imagine! explores children’s picturebooks as works of art through examples from the collection of Carol and Guy Wolfenbarger.

The original drawings, paintings, prints, and collages represent books from well-known illustrators including Floyd Cooper, Peter Catalanotto, Will Hillenbrand, E. B. Lewis, Barry Moser, Chris Raschka, Aminah Robinson, Maurice Sendak, and Robert Sabuda (pictured above.)

The work is presented in groupings of Tall Tales (fiction), True Tales (non-fiction), Tales with Tails (stories/art about animals) and Human Tales (stories/art about social interactions and human nature). But how might you have organized such an exhibition?
