In collaboration with The Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, Massachusetts, the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco has organized an exhibit celebrating the art of Arnold Lobel (1933-1987), author and illustrator of some of the most beloved children's books produced since the late 1960s. Included among these are his Frog and Toad series (1971-79), Mouse Soup (1977), and Fables (1980), which was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Medal.
Frog and Toad and the World of Arnold Lobel, which runs November 21, 2013 through March 23, 2014, includes approximately one hundred original illustrations and works on paper. The Contemporary Jewish Museum is located at 736 Mission St. in San Francisco, CA.
