Sep 16, 2021 - Jan 02, 2022
When “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” came out in 1865, it was a blockbuster success. The book is widely credited with changing the landscape of children’s literature, adding nonsensical fun to what had been a genre obsessed with moralizing. This year, the literary cornerstone turns 156 years old. This exhibition includes 35 different versions of this book including how different artists have illustrated this classic book. Since its first publication, it has been translated into 176 languages. At the time, the book was so popular that its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, sold out within seven weeks of its publication.
