Our First Virtual Exhibition is Now Open!
The Carle is proud to present  ART in PLACE: Social Distancing in the Studio , our first online exhibition, organized while the Museum is temporarily closed . Illustrator and author Mo Willems co-organized the exhibition with Ellen Keiter, The Carle's chief curator, inviting 21 picture book artists, isolated in studios around the world, to share their most recent work.

In addition to the artworks they've created, the artists share photographs of their studios and reflect on the importance of creativity. The curators hope the exhibition will provide solace to everyone counting on picture books during this challenging time. "Science is going to get us out of this," says Willems, "but Art is going to get us through this."

Artist Raúl Colón, the 2021 Carle Honors Artist announced in April, created the work above for the exhibition. If you've been making art at home, please share it with us on social media! #CarleArtInPlace

ART in PLACE has been made possible by the generous members and donors who support The Carle. Please give at
