Illuminated Literature: The Art of Jerry and Brian Pinkney

November 19, 2005 - February 19, 2006

Jerry and Brian Pinkney, father and son, have given form and color to stories that have shaped the values of a generation of children. The works in this exhibition were selected from eleven of the many great books that Jerry and Brian Pinkney have illustrated. Brian Pinkney’s scratchboard drawings have illustrated such books as In the Time of the Drums, by Kim L. Siegelson, and Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King, by Jean Marzollo. Watercolor illustrations by Jerry Pinkney in the exhibition include those from John Henry, by Julius Lester, and The Talking Eggs, by Robert D. San Souci, a Caldecott Honor Book.
