Head to Tribeca to see books in a whole new way! Children’s Museum of the Arts’ (CMA) “A Way With Words: The Power and Art of the Book,” is a new exhibition that presents artworks that draw attention to the long and remarkable history of the book (on view through April of this year). Including works by Cara Barer, Doug Beube, Long-Bin Chen, Casey Curran, Brian Dettmer, Ann Hamilton, Andrew Hayes, Lisa Kokin, Guy Laramée, Mike Stilkey, and Robert The, this exhibit shines a light on unconventional treatments as artists transform books into sculptures, animation, drawings, and paintings that capture the book’s significant history and power to inform the public. Children and their families will also create their own artworks inspired by the exhibition. Free with museum admission.
