Sunday, July 1, 2007 - Sunday, October 21, 2007: the Katonah Museum of Art is collaborating with Westchester County

... cultural organizations to offer exhibitions and programs around the theme of “Open Books.” This collaboration will provide many opportunities to consider the art of children’s book illustration and literature from many perspectives; to enjoy films based on popular children’s books; to see original art work from favorite authors and discover the work of less familiar artists; and to engage in a summer of rich reading. Collaborative offerings include the Katonah Museum of Art’s exhibition Children Should Be Seen: The Image of the Child in American Picture-Book Art, the Hudson River Museum's exhibition Building Books: The Art of David Macaulay, the Westchester Arts Council’s exhibition Seeing Stories: How Picture Book Artists Imagine, which highlights Westchester artists and is curated by KMA Trustees Yvonne Pollack and Jerry Pinkney ; the Westchester Library System's summer program Get a Clue @ Your Library; and a series of films adapted from children’s books at the Jacob Burns Film Center. Each participating organization will offer visitors a pass that will entitle them to free admission or a member discount at the other locations.
