Leo Lionni: A Passion for Creativity

July 13 - October 19, 2003
East Gallery

This exhibition surveys the career of Leo Lionni, one of the most beloved picture book artists of the twentieth century. Included are illustrations from Inch by Inch (1960), as well as Alexander and the Wind-up Mouse (1969) and Fish is Fish (1970). Examples of Lionni’s drawings, prints, and sculptures create a panorama of the master, who regarded the picture book as theater, its pages the stage on which his animal protagonists act out social dramas.
