Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic

Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic is the first museum retrospective of Walter Wick, the award-winning author and photographic illustrator of Can You See What I See? and co-creator of the famed I Spy book series. This engaging exhibition features a selection of Wick’s early photographs, several of the artist’s handcrafted, meticulously detailed installation models along with his large-format color photographs, which Wick used to illustrate his children’s books. The exhibition is accompanied by a rich array of complementary programming, including a lecture by Wick, teacher workshops, Family Days, K12 tours and hands-on learning opportunities, docent tours, and late-night openings. Beyond inspiring and entertaining, Games, Gizmos, and Toys in the Attic is the perfect platform for STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math)-based learning.
