I AM WILD: A Charley Harper Exhibit

about the exhibit

I AM WILD: A CHARLEY HARPER EXHIBIT is inspired by the series of children’s books “I Am Wild” and Harper’s related artwork about biodiversity. Visitors will explore the desert, rainforest, ocean, sky, woods and city, each filled with colorful animals, insects, and birds depicted in the minimal realistic style Harper perfected through his life time.

The exhibition will mix immersive play experiences with learner-driven, art-making activities. By encouraging multidisciplinary exploration, visitors will build an appreciation for the interdependency of our environment and the creatures that live in it, as well as see ways they can express their feelings about nature in Charley’s world – a fun place that brings them joy and encourages creativity.

I Am Wild: A Charley Harper Exhibit was created by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in partnership with Charley Harper Art Studio.
