Tacoma Art Museum Welcomes Eric Carle!

His caterpillar is hungry, his ladybug is grouchy, his spider is busy and his books are probably in your home! He’s Eric Carle and he’s coming to the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM). Eric Carle is best known for his colorful, children’s books illustrated with collage pieces of his hand-painted papers. He’s most famous for The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which has been translated into more than 50 languages. Since it’s publication in 1969, Carle has illustrated more than 70 books, most of which he also wrote, and more than 103 million copies of his books have been sold worldwide.

This beloved author and artist is coming to the Tacoma Art Museum on Sunday, April 7th. For the first time, visitors will have a chance to see the artist’s remarkable variety of paintings, sculptures, costumes designed for operas and personal sketches – which have been collected over the last 60 years – and meet this artistic innovator, too! The museum, in partnership with University of Washington-Tacoma, will host a conversation on campus with Carle, as he discusses his art and his career. After the lecture, head over to the museum to view the exhibit, Beyond Books: The Independent Art of Eric Carle, and meet the artist during the book signing portion of the event. Can’t make it on April 7th? Don’t be a grouchy ladybug, the exhibit will be on display at TAM through July 7th!
