Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum the Jerry Pinkney: Imaginings exhibition and a companion interactive exhibit designed for children, explored the artist’s engagement with literature, his legacy of creating powerful images, the joy of reading and the power of sharing stories.
Imaginings featured over 100 watercolors and sketches, as well as interviews, objects and memorabilia that reflected the artist’s love of literature and his process of creating meaningful visual solutions that expand and enliven a narrative. Pinkney’s illustrations have appeared in more than 100 books and received numerous honors including five Caldecott awards, and most recently the 2016 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award and 2016 Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement.
