Picture This!

Picture This! is the Danforth Museum of Art’s second annual juried exhibition showcasing new and original artwork created by picture book illustrators. Selected works will be exhibited in the Children’s Gallery, which is dedicated to the art of picture book illustration.  

Enjoy works by Jodie Apeseche, Emilie Boon, Kate Crosgrove, Jennifer French, Fran Gianfriddo, John Steven Gurney, Jen Hill, Gilles Laroche, Salley Mavor, Joe McKendry, Sheli Petersen, Jenny Rappaport, Lynn Reiser, Ilene Richard, Eleanor Rubin, Sybile Schenker, Kaila EunHye Seo, Marcela Staudenmaier, Phoebe Stone, Jill Weber and Katia Wish.

Carol Goldenberg, the juror for this year’s show, studied illustration at RISD. She says about the picture book: "Remember too, that the picture book is most often the first meeting a child has with artwork of any kind, and how important it is for all artists who work with the picture book to bring to it their highest level of quality and craft."
