Posted in All Arts & Culture

DECORAH, Iowa— Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, invites you to experience “The World of Jan Brett,” on view October 14, 2013-January 5, 2014. This fun and engaging traveling exhibition brings to life the stories of the beloved children’s author/illustrator. Original artwork, interactive adventure areas, and themed reading environments invite visitors to travel the globe and become a part of their favorite books. The exhibition welcomes all ages into the vivid cultures and endless imagination of these timeless children’s tales.



“When you look at my illustrations I hope they take you to a different place and time,” aspires Jan Brett. “Every illustration has a dozen stories behind the brushstrokes.”



“The World of Jan Brett” encourages playful exploration in hands-on discovery areas and immersive environments. The exhibition features more than 50 original paintings from ten of Jan Brett’s bestselling books, including “Gingerbread Friends,” “The Umbrella,” and “Honey…Honey…Lion!” Sketchbooks, hands-on discovery zones, and themed reading environments take visitors on a journey around the world to learn about the places and cultures that Jan Brett gets her inspiration from. There is even a super-size Hedgie, a hedgehog that is featured in the pages of many of Jan Brett’s best-loved stories!
