TAD Original Art on Governor's Island

The Children's Museum of the Arts has an outpost on Governor's Island where they hold summer camps, free art activities and exhibitions.  "Building 20", below is currently showing their collection of children's art from around the world, as well as the original art from TAD.

If you're in or near New York, Governor's Island is a really fascinating place to spend a day.  It's got an otherworldly feel to it, just off the tip of lower Manhattan, but completely isolated and filled with abandoned but well-maintained military buildings, including a fort.  The best part though is you can rent incredibly dorky 4 person bicycle cars!  (The last page of the TAD book shows us in one from a couple of years ago).  More about Governor's Island here.

We were just on Governor's Island yesterday, saw the TAD exhibit and fell in love. With two little ones in tow I didn't have enough time to stop and read all of the director's critiques so I was in search of more and found the blog. So fun and funny!
