The Opening!

After two years of dreaming and planning, Unbound: Original Picture Book Art by Utah Illustrators has opened at the Springville Museum of Art!

More than 15 of the illustrators attended the opening reception, and with five exhibitions opening in conjunction with Celebrate Your Museum Day, more than 800 people came to the museum! This despite the fact there was a BYU football game in the afternoon!

We started off the morning with two story times.

Then we had the opening reception at noon, complete with a chocolate fountain in the adjacent gallery. One of my favorite parts of the reception was watching students from the Art City Elementary journalism club interview the illustrators.

Relaxing with some of the museum staff at the end of a long day.
