The Walters celebrates the creative mind of renowned artist and children's book illustrator Walter Wick, the creator of the Can You See What I See? and the co-creator of the I Spy book series, read and loved by millions of children and adults around the world. In addition to large-format color photos, the exhibition includes several models built by Wick and his team which serve as the photographic illustrations in his books. One of Wick's most recent books, Can You See What I See on a Scary, Scary Night?, includes models and illustrations inspired in part by the Walters' Chamber of Wonders.
This exhibition is free for members and children 17 and under. Tickets are available for purchase online.
