With a vibrant mix of watercolor and cut-paper images, picture book artist Bryan Collier creates important portraits celebrating the lives of historical figures such as Barack Obama, Booker T. Washington, and ex-slave John Parker. Collier’s striking images illustrate unforgettable stories of family love, a child’s pride in his home in Harlem, and the inspirational song “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Winner of numerous awards, this passionate artist turns life’s everyday experiences into memorable visual journeys. www.katonahmuseum.org
