During a month filled with relevant celebrations, it seems fitting to highlight the power of images to spark interest far and wide. February – filled with celebrating children’s authors and illustrators, black history, and valentines – began with warm fuzzies for a cool creation.
I’ve been thinking a lot about children’s books recently. In the coming months, the Woodson Art Museum will renew its biennial commitment to the art of children’s illustrated literature with an exhibition featuring the exuberant work of Christian Robinson, What Might You Do?, on view December 4, 2021 through February 27, 2022. Recently, my husband and I welcomed a granddaughter, and my children’s book quest took on an added dimension.
