All the World's a Stage: Anita Lobel

On view at the CMA and Richland Library
through August 17, 2014

Anita Lobel's name is synonymous with the best in children's literature. Her life and career are truly amazing: from Holocaust survivor to designer to revered author and illustrator of children's books. This exhibition is comprised of over 70 works on paper and 30 books, representing more than 40 years of the artist's work. Selections range from Lobel's art as a textile designer in the early 1960s to some of her most famous books, such as Nini Here and There, Sven's Bridge, and Away From Home. The show will be on view in the CMA's Wells Fargo Education Gallery and in the community gallery at Richland Library's Main Branch. Free and open to the public at both locations. On loan from the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature in Abilene, Texas.
