Tomie de Paola Reflects On Art And Life "Then"
The inspiration for this character came to de Paola in an unusual place: a faculty meeting at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire.
Colby-Sawyer College is hosting a new exhibition called “Tomie de Paola: Then,” looking at de Paola’s art from the 1940’s all through the mid 1970’s, when he taught at the college.
Next fall Colby-Sawyer will host a second exhibit, called “Now,” which will feature de Paola’s work from 1975 to the present.
Tomie dePaola talks with Brady Carlson about the exhibition.
