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.

Participants will be given sketching pads and pencils to sketch their favorite artwork.  No drawing experience is required.

The second Saturday of each month, join a docent-guided sketching tour of GRAM’s exhibitions. Sketching is a great way to look more deeply at the works of art on view as well as express your own creativity. These tours are free with admission and are open to individuals of all ages and levels of experience.  Please meet at 1pm in the main lobby.
