ELEPHANT & PIGGIE IN WE ARE ART!

(A Mo Willems Exhibition)

April 2 – May 15, 2019

Mo Willems’s best-selling, award-winning early reader series features best friends Elephant Gerald and Piggie, who are ready to hit the road in this special touring exhibition organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Since their debut in 2007, Elephant and Piggie have entertained millions of children and adults with their hilarious escapades that impart valuable lessons on manners, empathy, emotions, and—most importantly—friendship.

The exhibition features a selection of original illustrations from all 25 Elephant & Piggie books. These black-and-white drawings are supplemented with digital color renderings, early sketches, dummy books, and character size charts, together revealing Willems’s methodical working process. A generation of children have learned to read with Elephant and Piggie, and this exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view the charismatic duo first-hand.

Elephant & Piggie in WE ARE ART! (A Mo Willems Exhibition) is organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, Massachusetts.
