About the show

“Reimagination of Children’s Book Covers,” will run March – May 2022, with the opening in conjunction with March Reading Month. This exhibition will be juried by Riverside Arts Center’s gallery committee. Both ammiture and professional artists are welcome to apply. Riverside Arts Center will create digital and print marketing materials for the show, as well as promote the opening reception and open gallery hours. Images of accepted works will be posted on Riverside’s website to create a digital gallery experience.

From childhood into adulthood children’s books have shaped the way we all understand life, relationships, and imagination. Children’s books have universal themes of kindness, acceptance, and joy. And at every life stage a new meaning can be learned from these stories. Works from this show are meant to inspire adults and children to read more and create more. Sharing favorite stories, books, and images can encourage meaningful and intergenerational connections between books and art.
