- The CSK Book Awards Artwork on Exhibit at Chicago's Art Institute
The Art Institute of Chicago's exhibit features multiple works, lent by selected illustrator winnters of the Coretta Scott King Award. The works by Bryan Collier, Jerry Pinkney, Ashley Bryan, Kadir Nelson, B. Gregory Christie, Colin Boatman, and E.B. Lewis, are grand, in two galleries, and in the direct walkway of probably 100,000 visitors before it closes August 7, 2006. Each set of illustrations includes the book itself on a low table for children to see the transfer from canvas to book. It is a breath-taking opportunity to see King illustrators' work so elegantly shared with children. Find more information at www.artic.edu/aic/exhibitions/family.html.
