Toys in the Attic at the Bruce Museum
Monday, January 09, 2012
The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, presents the playful and enchanting world of the award-winning author and photographer Walter Wick in a major new exhibition titled Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic on view from January 28 through April 22, 2012. Wick is the creator of the Can You See What I See? books and co-creator of the I Spy series for children.
This retrospective exhibition of Wick’s work from 1973 through today spotlights approximately 40 large-scale photographs, several models used to craft his seemingly impossible images, and videos that offer a behind-the-scenes look at Wick’s creative process. The photographs, many enlarged to over five-feet wide, reveal details and colors not possible in the book reproductions. The exhibition is organized by the New Britain Museum of American Art and is generously underwritten by Greenwich Magazine/Moffly Media, the Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund, and a Committee of Honor under the Chairmanship of Tiffany Burnette and Linda Chase-Jenkins.
