Drop-In Tour: David Wiesner & The Art of Wordless Storytelling
October 19, 2019, 1:00 PM-2:00 PM
David Wiesner has enthralled readers for three decades, and his remarkable career is surveyed in this first-ever retrospective devoted to his art. The exhibition features 70 original watercolors from some of Wiesner’s most famous books, including three for which he won the prestigious Caldecott Medal: Tuesday (1992), The Three Pigs (2002), and Flotsam (2007). Also on view is work from Wiesner’s earliest artistic successes while still a student at the Rhode Island School of Design to his most recent book project—his first graphic novel, Fish Girl, published in 2017.
Drop-in tours are free with admission and meet in the museum’s main lobby at 1pm. No registration required.
