The Mysteries of Chris Van Allsburg

November 20, 2004 - March 13, 2005
East Gallery

Throughout his career as both a sculptor and picture book artist, Chris Van Allsburg has combined a keen appreciation for the mysteries of life with an arresting sense of its beauty. In Van Allsburg’s universe, boats sail through clouds, a jungle stone transforms men into monkeys, and entire dramas unfold in a single illustration. The Carle presents the art of this acknowledged master in a mid-career retrospective.

This exhibition was made possible in part by generous support from Houghton Mifflin.
