Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic opened this past weekend to record crowds and wide smiles.
The exhibition and Walter Wick’s presence – a main ingredient! – at the Woodson Art Museum throughout the weekend were a winning combination. The galleries are visually vibrant, drawing in all ages for a close look and puzzle solving, regardless of familiarity with the praise-winning photographic illustrator and his more than forty books with more than forty-five million copies in print worldwide.
Add Walter’s graciousness and accommodating nature to the ingredient list and the result is scrumptious.
Walter signed hundreds of books throughout the weekend and always with a smile. He posed for photographs with anyone who asked and also took his own photos of I SPY-inspired drawings and mini-books brought by fans to share with him.
These photos tell the story even better than words.
The opening weekend of Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic was a resounding and unqualified success.
For a visually stunning treat, don’t miss this exhibition – and the array of related programming – on view through Sunday, May 29; it’s a recipe for success!
