Cover of book Built to Last by David Macaulay
David Macaulay

David Macaulay is renowned for his intricate drawings explaining everything from how cathedrals were built to the inner workings of the human body. But he may be best known for The Way Things Work, first published in 1988.  A 1991 Caldecott Medal winner and 2006 MacArthur “Genius Award” Fellow, the British-born illustrator now calls Norwich home.

Macaulay will talk about his work and vision.  In conjunction with his talk, Pierson’s Community Art Gallery will host a show of eight of Macaulay’s original works spanning from the early 1980’s to the present. 

Wednesday, December 11th at 7:00 pm.

This show was originally curated by the Vermont Arts Council
