KAHBAHBLOOOM - Ed Emberley on Display
The exhibit was delightful and full of joy. The museum made every effort to allow children to touch and experience Ed's art. The "do not touch the drawings" signs were replaced with "please touch" plaques. Murals replicating his work were painted across the walls and a giant Paul Bunyan's house, that echoed the illustration in one of his books, was constructed in the middle of the room. Drawing paper was placed in a corner along with a collection of the Ed Emberley Drawing series. Colorful tiles were placed in a light box for attendees to manipulate and play with light and color. The exhibit was all so very kid-friendly, welcoming, and uplifting. One couldn't help but smile as they walked out of the little room. I know I was smiling, but I also left with a powerful message: Everyone can be an artist - thanks to Ed Emberley!
