Online Exhibition Honoring Childhood Creativity

What can the art of childhood reveal? Does it show burgeoning talent, exciting potential, or perhaps simply the beginning of a love to create? These are some of the questions explored in an online exhibition of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, co-curated by award-winning illustrators Grace Lin and Jarrett J. Krosoczka. Together, with 17 other artists, they honor childhood creativity in Now & Then: Contemporary Illustrators and Their Childhood Art. Viewers see examples of each artist’s childhood drawings and how the drawings foreshadow the artists’ current creative interests. From stick drawings and crayon animals to beautiful watercolors and digital illustrations, the pairings inspire young viewers to make connections to their own creations—and their future potential. Lin and Krosoczka selected artists working in myriad formats—picture books, chapter books, and graphic novels—and chose contemporary artists, since one of the purposes of the exhibition is to show children where their own artistic journey could take them.
