Artist Chris Raschka Visits Omaha
Joslyn Art Museum is presenting “BRAVO! Chris Raschka” in the museum’s Mind’s Eye Gallery. The exhibit is comprised of almost 60 of the artist’s award-winning illustrations.
Raschka’s artwork centers on everything from jazz legends Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane to friendship and family.
“My books are my own thoughts about things that are important to me. I work through how I feel about such things as language, art, music and friendship, with these loose, colorful, and slightly wild drawings,” Raschka said.
Last month, Raschka was awarded his second Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in A Ball for Daisy.
Saturday’s surprise event includes an art-making activity.
