Everyone connected with the world of children’s book art was thrilled by the strong prices. Thus, to celebrate their purchase, Garth Williams’s 100th birthday, the 60th anniversary of <em>Charlotte’s Web</em>, and the Museum’s 10th year, the Carle is assembling the exhibition, <em>Some Book! Some Art!: Selected Drawings by Garth Williams for Charlotte’s Web</em>, which comprises of approximately 30 finished drawings.</p><p> Mon, 28 Jan 2013 16:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 56639 at http://wamc.org The Carle Museum's 10th Anniversary
