DESCRIPTION

The museum is collaborating with Leggett Elementary, King Elementary, Glover Elementary and The Lippman School to celebrate the power of picture book storytelling and promote visual literacy. Leggett second and third grade students will create collaborative classroom picture books to be displayed in The Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation Gallery. The student artists will also meet and work with children's book author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh, who will create a large-scale mural for the exhibition depicting a contemporary interpretation of Ezra Jack Keat's classic The Snowy Day.
