The N.C. Museum of Art opened "Fins and Feathers: Original Children’s Book Illustrations from The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art" Nov. 7, and will run the exhibit through Jan. 30, 2011.
The exhibit features daydreaming fish, stately egrets and day-tripping chickens. Illustrations are hung at a height of 55 inches (the standard height for installation is 60 inches). This lower height better accommodates younger visitors. Learn more about the exhibit here.
