Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Currently at the ERIC CARLE MUSEUM OF PICTURE BOOK ART in Amherst, Massachusetts, is an exhibition many of us have been eagerly anticipating: THE GOLDEN LEGACY: ORGINAL ART FROM 65 YEARS OF GOLDEN BOOKS. This unique exhibition features the paintings from some of the most beloved books of our childhood by artists like Feodor Rojankovsky, Tibor Gergely, Gustaf Tenggren and Mary Blair. Though these names may not sound familiar, their work is recognized by almost everyone. This is a show that the entire family can enjoy. In the studio tonight talking about the lives of these artists of our childhood books is LEONARD S. MARCUS, noted historian of children’s literature and author of GOLDEN LEGACY: HOW GOLDEN BOOKS WON CHILDREN’S HEARTS, CHANGING PUBLISHING FORVER AND BECAME AN AMERICAN ICON ALONG THE WAY.
