The Art of Eric Carle

February 1 - May 29, 2005
West Gallery

“Where do ideas come from?” This question is often asked of Eric Carle. The art in this exhibition reflects Carle’s love of nature, born during childhood walks in the woods with his father. In addition to drawing on his own experiences, Carle finds inspiration in random events to most of us—a crate of rubber toys falling off a freighter in the middle of the ocean—the inspiration for his book Ten Little Rubber Ducks (2005).
