Beyond the book

Children's book illustrators get the chance to show work that isn't bound by the rules or plot line of a story. One of my favorites was Mike Whonoutka whose self-portraits were just as whimsical as his animal portraits. The opening of the show was this past weekend at the Bloomington Art Center, an impressive building in suburban Minneapolis that I had never visited until going out to see this exhibition.

You beat me to it, Kim, but now that I've seen our post, I'm definitely going to the exhibit. It's a wonderful building, isn't it?!

Yes Kate. A lovely surprise - the building AND the exhibit.
