"Everyone Can Fly" Exhibition at the SAM

I am thrilled to be a part of the lovely group exhibition Everyone Can Fly at the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg, PA. The show opened on March 20th, and will be up through the end of May. If you find yourself in the Harrisburg area I hope you'll drop by the beautiful museum and enjoy a visit.

Everyone Can Fly is an exhibition of original illustrations from a group of award-winning children’s books with a focus on literacy and its relevance for the youth of our region. The centerpiece of this collection will be all of the original artwork from Tar Beach by internationally renowned author/painter/quilter/lecturer Faith Ringgold. This magical story was the recipient of the 1991 Coretta Scott King Award for Illustration and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book choice. Another feature of this unique exhibition will be the addition of local and regional illustrators.
