The Carle Honors Annual Benefit Gala
Held in New York City, The Carle Honors is the Museum’s annual benefit gala. At the heart of the Honors are four awards celebrating individuals whose creative vision and dedication are an inspiration to everyone who values picture books and their role in arts education and literacy. The awards, selected each year by a committee chaired by Leonard S. Marcus, founder of the Honors, recognize individuals in four distinct forms:
- Artist, for lifelong innovation in the field;
- Mentor, editors, designers, and educators who champion the art form;
- Angel, whose generous resources are crucial to making picture book art exhibitions, education programs, and related projects a reality; and
- Bridge, individuals who have found inspired ways to bring the art of the picture book to larger audiences through work in other fields.
The Carle Honors Art Auction, a key fundraiser for the event, features original works of art donated by some of the industry’s most celebrated artists. This art is available on display in the weeks leading up to the event at Books of Wonder bookstore in New York City.
