My Visit to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art

Over the long weekend, I went to check out the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art on the Hampshire College campus.  I've wanted to visit this special place for a long time, so I was very excited to finally make it there.  

In addition to having displays showing Eric Carle's work, the museum also featured another favorite artist, Mo Willems, of "Knufflebunny" and "Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" fame.  

The entry hall of the museum is decorated with his painted murals by Eric Carle. 

Kids love to explore the giant Very Hungry Caterpillar.  That's my niece, Samantha, on the left.

The art studio is filled with materials and project to inspire young artists.  The sun was perfect during our visit to show off these beautiful texture pieces.
