Seriously Silly: a Decade of Art & Whimsy by Mo Willems marks 10 years of the artist creating picture books. The show, at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, surveys the full range of his prolific output from the award-winning Knuffle Bunny series to Elephant and Piggie.
Mo began his career as a writer and animator for television, garnering six Emmy Awards for his writing on Sesame Street, creating Nickelodeon's The Off-Beats, Cartoon Network’s Sheep in the Big City and head-writing Codename: Kids Next Door.
Often called “the Dr. Seuss of his generation,” Mo is among the most popular book author / illustrators of all time. He is a New York Times #1 Best Selling author and illustrator, and his work has garnered 3 Caldecott Honors, 2 Theodor (Seuss) Geisel Medals, 2 Carnegie Medals, and a Geisel Honor.
The R. Michelson Galleries also have a show of Mo's work, entitled Don't Pigeonhole Me!
