“Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic” is the first museum retrospective of Walter Wick, the award-winning author and photographic illustrator of Can You See What I See? and co-creator of the famed I Spy book series. This engaging exhibition features a selection of Wick’s early photographs, which provided a foundation for the artist’s interest in illusions, puzzles, games, and science.
It includes several of the artist’s handcrafted, meticulously detailed installation models along with his large-format color photographs, which Wick used to illustrate his children’s books. Together these works provide a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process and a window into the puzzles and illusions for which he is so well known. The exhibition is accompanied by a rich array of complementary programming, including a lecture by Wick, teacher workshops, Family Days, K12 tours and hands-on learning opportunities, docent tours, and late-night openings.
Exhibition runs through Sep 24, 2017
