September 19, 2010-January 2, 2011 at the Walters Art Museum
Loved by millions of children and adults around the world, award-winning author and photographic illustrator Walter Wick has a keen interest in puzzles, games, science and illusions. This exhibition is the first museum retrospective of his work and will feature several of his handcrafted, meticulously detailed installation models accompanied by large-format color photographs of the illustrations from his books. Together they will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the artist's creative process and a window into the puzzles and illusions for which he is so well known.
