The Art of Eric Carle at the High Museum + Giveaway
I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle is now on display at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA through January 8, 2017. The High is the sole venue for this retrospective, which will feature more than 80 of Carle’s signature collages from 16 of his most popular books that span his nearly 50-year career. Five iconic works from the 1987 edition of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, as well as a giant 40-by-60-inch illustration titled “The Very Large, Very Hungry Caterpillar”, were made specifically for this show.
This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Alliance Theatre’s world premiere play with music Pancakes, Pancakes! (June 1 through July 3, 2016), based on Eric Carle’s book of the same name.
The 16 Eric Carle books featured are listed below, chronologically, from Carle’s first illustrated story, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” through to his latest heartwarming “Friends.”
Tip: Read before you go. Check the books out at your local library or order online via Amazon.

I love the High Museum and the Eric Carle exhibit, so I’m excited today to give away a family 4-pack of tickets to one lucky reader!
My kids love many of his books but my favorites are Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They were so fun to read to my classroom and then my kids but also had so many wonderful activities to go along with the books.
Would love to win tickets! My younger children have not been yet. We love all his books, but especially Brown bear brown bear! Commented and posted!
The Very Busy Spider is my son’s favorite book. He loves how each animal appears and asks the spider to play! Its also neat to feel how the web gets bigger each page as the spider builds his web. We have nearly every book by Eric Carle – certainly a beloved artist in our home!
My favorite Eric Carle book is The Artist who Painted a Blue Horse. I like this book in particular because it encourages artistic imagination.
