World-renowned children’s book author and illustrator Eric Carle is best known for his use of tissue paper collage illustration and for writing the best selling children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Having grown up reading the childhood storybooks The Very Hungry Caterpillar; Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See, and other classics, I was thrilled to see Eric Carle’s works come to Masan’s 315 Art Center.
The “World of Eric Carle” exhibit is currently running at Masan’s 315 Art Center, and will run from July 12th until September 1st. It features dozens of original works of art spanning all five decades of Eric Carle’s celebrated career.
The exhibit also features two floors of interactive space that can be enjoyed by audiences young and old. On the first floor, adult visitors can enjoy taking photos of the larger than life illustrations while can children play on and explore the “World of Eric Carle.“
The second floor features an art studio space, with tables, paints and paintbrushes. Here, museum-goers can use their skills and creativity to create their very own work of art to be put up in the museum.
Eric Carle said, “I believe children are naturally creative and eager to learn.” Masan ‘s 315 Art Center’s “World of Eric Carle” exhibit playfully embodies Eric Carle’s philosophies toward parenting, children, education, creativity and imagination, by allowing a space for parents and children to bond, learn and explore.
