Exhibition: Take the Plunge: Works of Donna Jo Napoli and David Wiesner
Start Date: 3/13/2017 All Day
End Date: 5/7/2017

Event Description:
This exhibition highlights the creation of the newly released work Fish Girl, the first graphic novel for both David Wiesner and Donna Jo Napoli. This was an unusual collaboration for them. Wiesner typically creates picture books as both author and illustrator. Napoli typically creates novels, but when she does work on picture books, the publishers generally disallow interaction with the illustrators. Fish Girl, in contrast, called for interaction from the beginning to the end. It was a thrilling challenge. Materials on display include original paintings by Wiesner, the first draft of the novel, and notes between Napoli and Wiesner. The exhibition also features other works by Donna Jo Napoli, including drafts of the works and notes between the author and editors.
