This is the first North American traveling exhibit for children inspired by the art of Eric Carle.

At this play-and-learn exhibit, visitors will step into the pages of Eric Carle’s colorful picture books. His “Very” series, all illustrated in his hand-painted tissue paper collage technique, introduces five special insects who take journeys of discovery.

What You'll Do

• Become the Very Hungry Caterpillar as you follow his path
• Weave a web with the Very Busy Spider
• Find your light with the Very Lonely Firefly
• Make the Very Clumsy Click Beetle flip and jump
• Compose a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket
• Create artwork using many of Eric Carle’s materials and techniques
• Enjoy a gallery of prints from Eric Carle’s “Very” book series

Each story is a testament to Eric Carle’s love of nature, his respect for the emotional lives of children, and his recurring themes of friendship, creativity, and the power of imagination.
