Ezra Jack Keats


Reproduced with permission of the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation

The Jewish Museum in New York is responsible for putting together the first major exhibition celebrating the art of author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats. His classic, Caldecott Award-winning picture book , The Snowy Day is considered a children's literature treasure, but his 20 year career yielded numerous amazing picture books.
Currently the exhibition, "The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats", curated by The Jewish Museum's Claudia J. Nahson, is at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA.
If you are scheduling a leaf peeping trip in western Massachusetts, you need to add this to your list of must-sees.

We will be happy to give you permission to keep them on your website (here and on "The Snowy Day..." post)if you add the line, "Reproduced with permission of the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation" below each image.
