The Art of Eric Carle: Seasons

The Art of Eric Carle: Seasons celebrates the animals, plants, and activities associated with the four seasons. Carle illustrates the wonder of nature at all times of year—hibernating bears in winter, hatching chicks in spring, colorful flowers in summer, and apple trees ripe for picking in fall. The changing seasons guide his story of The Tiny Seed, while the cycles of nature play a supporting role in Alice McLerran’s The Mountain that Loved a Bird. This exhibition features Carle’s iconic collage art from 15 picture books as well as several never-before seen watercolors.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Hsin-Yi Foundation.
