Follow the adventures of Homer Price in live action short films (each approximately 20 minutes) The Doughnuts and The Case of the Cosmic Comic.

About special exhbition Make Way for Ducklings: The Art of Robert McCloskey (on view July 20–September 9):
Make Way for Ducklings: The Art of Robert McCloskey celebrates the writer and illustrator whose classic children’s books have captivated children of all ages for generations. The recipient of two Caldecott Medals and three Caldecott Honors, McCloskey was a major force in twentieth century children’s literature.

The exhibition consists of over 100 original artworks, ephemera, and rare preliminary book materials. While emphasis centers on his classic, Make Way for Ducklings (1941) the exhibition considers McCloskey’s entire works including Centerburg Tales (1951), which recall his youth in Hamilton, Ohio. In addition, it includes his family-based stories in his adopted home state of Maine such as Blueberries for Sal (1948) and Time of Wonder (1957). A selection of independent work—watercolors and paintings that connect McCloskey to such prominent twentieth century American painters as Thomas Hart Benton and Edward Hopper—are also showcased. Free admission.
