The Dubuque Museum of Art is pleased to present a new exhibition highlighting the boundless imagination and humor of children’s book author
and artist Arthur Geisert.
Opening this fall, the DuMA will present the original illustrations from Geisert’s latest work of fiction, Pumpkin Island, published by Enchanted Lion Books, along with illustrations from his 2013 work Thunderstorm. The exhibition will bring the wondrous worlds of Geisert’s books to life with more than 60 hand-colored etchings (including one that is over 30 feet long), plus preparatory drawings and copper plates. The original works will be complimented by a video and hands-on activities for children and families.
