We’re thrilled to announce that we have not one, but TWO, museum exhibitions in New York this fall!
First, we have been invited to exhibit original felt artwork from Star Wars Epic Yarns at The Strong – National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York from September 2015 to January 2016. If you haven’t heard of The Strong, Forbes magazine calls it “one of the most unique and impressive children’s museums on earth.”
The plan is to house the fuzzy friends you see below in display cases for an estimated 175,000+ visitors during the exhibition. In addition to the figures, we will also be displaying four oversized prints in backlit lightboxes. To support our exhibition, please check out our GoFundMe page.
Second, artwork from Star Wars Epic Yarns: A New Hope has been selected for the 2015 Original Art Exhibition presented at the Museum of American Illustration in New York City! The Original Art is an annual exhibit run by the Society of Illustrators to showcase illustrations from the year’s best children’s books published in the U.S. This is a juried exhibition, and we’re beside ourselves that we’ve been included in an exhibition with the likes of Sophie Blackall, Eric Carle, Emma Chichester Clark, Mike Curato, Tony DiTerlizzi, Oliver Jeffers, Jon Klassen, Nikki McClure, Julie Morstad, Jerry Pinkney, Chris Raschka, Sergio Ruzzier, Peter Sis, Herve Tullet and Mo Willems. And little ol’ us! Wow! Here’s the complete list of exhibitors.
Here are some images of the exhibition from years past:
