"PADDINGTON COMES TO AMERICA" Exhibition
Posted on 22 May 2018
The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is proud to be the first American museum to feature the beloved bear in Paddington™ Comes to America. The exhibition commemorates the 60th anniversary of the first book by Michael Bond, A Bear Called Paddington. Fifteen novels, numerous publishing formats, two television series and two successful movies have ensured the loveable bear from Darkest Peru remains as popular as ever. Original art by Paddington’s various illustrators—Peggy Fortnum, Fred Banbery, Ivor Wood, David McKee, Barry Macey, and R.W. Alley—provides comparisons of the iconic and beloved bear over time. Guests can “travel” to Paddington’s favorite sites in London posted around the gallery, stamping special London bus passes at each location.
