Celebrating Sixty Years of Curious George: The Art of H.A. and Margret Rey
Toronto Reference Library
December 7, 2002 – February 2, 2003
There’s more to do at the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St.) than bury your head in a book. An exhibit at the library’s TD Gallery, “Celebrating Sixty Years of Curious George: The Art of H.A. and Margret Rey,” contains original artwork and memorabilia from the creators of the books you loved as a child, and possibly still enjoy (albeit in a slightly twisted way).
Celebrity designed yellow hats commemorate the friendship between the fictional “Man in the Yellow Hat” and Curious George. Yellow hats on display here were originally designed for the exhibit when it was in New York City. The hats included in the Toronto exhibit are by actor/comedienne Rosie O’Donnell, singer/actor Bette Midler, designer Nicole Miller and others.
The free exhibit runs to Feb. 2. For library hours and info, call 416-395-5577.
