The Joester Loria Group is excited to share the news of an exhibit dedicated to Eric Carle at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, which debuted last month. The Joester Loria Group is the brand licensing agency for The World of Eric Carle, the brand based on Carle’s iconic works including, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit debuted on Saturday, June 13 at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Co-organized with The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, Very Eric Carle is the first North American traveling exhibit for children inspired by the art of beloved children’s book author and illustrator Eric Carle.
At this play-and-learn exhibit, visitors can step into the pages of Eric Carle’s colorful illustrations. His classic “Very” series, all illustrated in his hand-painted tissue paper collage technique, introduces five special insects who take journeys of discovery. Each story is a testament to Eric Carle’s love of nature, his respect for the emotional lives of children, and his recurring themes of friendship, creativity, and the power of imagination.
Visitors can experience a number of engaging activities including:
· Becoming the Very Hungry Caterpillar as they follow his path
· Weaving a web with the Very Busy Spider
· Finding their light with the Very Lonely Firefly
· Making the Very Clumsy Click Beetle flip and jump
· Composing a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket
· Creating artwork using many of Eric Carle’s materials and techniques
· Enjoying a gallery of prints from Eric Carle’s “Very” book series
Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit will be on display at the Children’s Museum through September 20 and then begins its multi-year tour as a traveling exhibit. The exhibit’s first booking is with The Magic House in St. Louis, MO, opening October 2015. The exhibit is expected to tour for up to 10 years.
