Thanks to a generous gift from Grand Haven residents Carol Alexander and Kevin Carbery, Loutit District Library will host a special exhibition of children’s picture book art on loan from the Mazza Museum at the University of Findlay, located in Findlay, Ohio.

The Mazza Museum is the first and largest museum in the world specializing in art from children’s picture books.

On Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m., Benjamin E. Sapp, director of the museum, will kick off the exhibit with a discussion of picture book art and the museum’s collection.

The exhibit of 20 original works of art, Building Blocks of Picture Book Art, presenting examples of various parts of the picture book creation process — endpapers, book covers, and color separation — will be on display in the library’s Upper Lobby through November.

More information about the museum and its collection can be found at www.mazzamuseum.org.
