A William Steig Celebration

The Jewish Museum in New York City will be celebrating William Steig this month. As part of this event, the Museum will be offering an Educator Workshop on November 29th, and and a Family Day on November 11th.

The exhibit From The New Yorker to Shrek: The Art of William Steig will continue into March. If, like me, you only get into NYC a few times a decade, there is a wonderful On-line Feature. (I've had trouble accessing it through the icon and had to ago up to the menu bar.) A favorite line of mine from this material: (Steig's) "parents encouraged their sons to choose the arts over other professions to avoid having them exploited as laborers and to prevent them from exploiting others."

Man, do I wish I'd thought of that.
