Carnival of the Animals

Lively mixed-media illustrations by Mary GrandPré, whose work became ubiquitous through her illustrations for all of the Harry Potter books, colorfully embellish animal verses written by America's first Children's Poet Laureate, Jack Prelutsky. Together, the author and illustrator capture the humor and beauty inherent in Camille Saint-Saëns' 1886 musical composition The Carnival of the Animals which expressed through music the quirky habits the composer's friends shared with animals. This exhibition once again complements Wausau Dance Theatre's Storybook Weekend, May 5, which includes a circus party and two performances of Carnival of the Animals, Saturday, May 5, at Wausau's Grand Theater.
