On November 10, 2012, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, will start celebrating its 10th anniversary. It will mark the occasion with special events, exhibitions, and family activities. Book festivals, special guest speakers from around the world, and educational workshops are also planned as part of the year long celebration.
The museum, which opened in November 22, 2002, has become quite an attraction for tourists as well as local book lovers, and of course, kids of all ages. Founded by Barbara and Eric Carle, the museum is dedicated to showcasing some of the most outstanding examples of children’s book art. It features many pieces of original artwork and sketches for some of the most well known picture books, beautifully preserved and elegantly displayed in the airy, contemporary halls of the museum. The museum also offers opportunities to create your own future masterpieces, watch a theater production or meet a famous author.
