Description

The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) presents Frog and Toad and the World of Arnold Lobel, a new exhibition celebrating Arnold Lobel (1933–1987), the award-winning author and illustrator of some of the most beloved children’s books produced since the late 1960s. Included amongst these are the classic early readers in the Frog and Toad series (1971–79), Mouse Soup (1977), and Fables (1980), which was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Medal.

The exhibition features over 100 original illustrations and works on paper highlighting Lobel’s detailed illustration technique and warm, funny tales of love and friendship, mostly among animal friends. Lobel subtly reflected on human foibles in a charming world populated by a talking frog, a toad, an owl, mice, kangaroos, and other colorful creatures.

Time:Open daily (except Wed.): 11am–5pm and Thursday, 1–8pm

Admission:$12 adults, $10 students and senior citizens with a valid ID, and $5 on Thursdays after 5pm. Youth 18 and under free.
