The Picture Book Re-Imagined
We are excited to announce the July 12 opening of The Picture Book Re-Imagined: The Children’s Book Legacy of Pratt Institute and the Bank Street College of Education. The exhibition, curated by Leonard Marcus, features original children’s book artwork, manuscripts, and archival materials highlighting the ongoing legacy of Bank Street and Pratt Institute in shaping children’s literature as an art form.
The exhibition will be on view at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery from July 12 through September 15.
