Tasha Tudor: Around the Year illustrates the changing seasons and their special celebrations with over 100 outstanding examples of this beloved author and illustrator’s original art for children’s books and greeting cards. Evocative watercolors, delicate childhood drawings, original handwritten manuscripts, miniature doll cards, hand-decorated boxes and Easter eggs, and first-issue holiday cards are among the heartwarming treasures to be enjoyed in this exhibit from the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Spanning seven decades, Tasha Tudor’s touching images remind us of the simple pleasures of savoring each passing season and cherishing the special moments that weave into the fabric of our lives.
