A weekend and 10 years

We've just returned to Florida after a weekend of festivities marking the 10th anniversary of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. More than 1,200 friends and visitors came to the Museum over the course of the weekend including publishers from as far away as Germany and Korea. We feel so proud of the Museum and its wonderful staff and all of the illustrators who came and we thank you all for making this dream of ours a reality. We hope it will be a place where the picture book will be enjoyed and studied for many years to come.

10th Anniversary

Dear Friends,
Bobbie and I are very happy to be back in Massachusetts, here to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and the opening of the exhibition, Iconic Images: Ten Years of Collecting for The Carle which includes works by many wonderful illustrators who have found a home for their art work in the Museum's permanent collection. We feel like we are coming home, too, and we are delighted and grateful to be marking this special occasion for The Carle.
We hope you will be able to visit during this anniversary year!
