A new exhibit opened at the Currier today, Building Books: The Art of David Macaulay. Author and artist David Macaulay has demystified the workings and origins of everything from simple machines to elaborate architectural structures. A favorite with readers of all ages, this Caldecott Medal-winning artist is the subject of this exciting exhibition that takes an in-depth look at Macaulay's artistic process and extensive body of work, including The Way Things Work, Castle, Cathedral, City, Mill, Ship, and Mosque. The exhibition presents over 100 original works of art, studies, sketchbooks, book dummies, manuscripts and correspondence, artifacts including hand-built ship models), and more. It runs through June 14, 2009. Mr. Macaulay was a guest on NHPR's Word of Mouth earlier this week.
