about the exhibit

Opposites Abstract: A Mo Willems Exhibit is based on Mo Willems’ recent all-ages book, Opposites Abstract, published by Hyperion Books for Children. Taking inspiration from the eye-popping, emotive and highly accessible words and abstract images from the book, this interactive exhibition invites its audience to view and play by exploring the complicated yet simple concept of opposites through hands-on experiences, art making activities, and artist-led performances. Geared to both children and former children of all ages, the exhibition will inspire every visitor to create and respond to art in their own unique ways.

This exhibit includes all the original artwork framed: Opposites Abstract Art Check List
