Walter Wick, the children's book artist and author, will have his work on display at the Lowe Art Museum in Miami until Sept. 24, 2017.   “Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic”  is the first museum retrospective of Walter Wick, the award-winning author and photographic illustrator of Can You See What I See? and co-creator of the famed I Spy book series. 

 This engaging exhibition features a selection of Wick’s early photographs, which provided a foundation for the artist’s interest in illusions, puzzles, games, and science. It includes several of the artist’s handcrafted, meticulously detailed installation models along with his large-format color photographs, which Wick used to illustrate his children’s books. Together these works provide a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process and a window into the puzzles and illusions for which he is so well known.

The exhibition is accompanied by a rich array of complementary programming, including a lecture by Wick, teacher workshops, Family Days, K12 tours and hands-on learning opportunities, docent tours, and late-night openings. Beyond inspiring and entertaining, Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic is the perfect platform for STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math)-based learning.

This exhibition is organized by the New Britain Museum of American Art.
