In conjunction with the USM Children's Book Festival, at which David Diaz will be speaking, Southern Breeze SCBWI is organizing a reception and tour of the the Golden Kite, Golden Dreams art exhibit.
Mr. Diaz is the curator of this collection of award winning art from children's books in cooperation with the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature (see http://www.nccil.org/experience/artists/Golden%20Kite%20Golden%20Dreams/index.htm
). The Golden Kite, Golden Dreams exhibit features artwork from some of the most prestigious, influential and talented children's book artists, including a number of Caldecott Award Winners. With seventy-five pieces from 50 artists, ranging from ink, pencil, acrylic, gouache, and watercolors to paper cutting, the collection is truly a treat for those who love children's literature.
