The Armory Show is back in town. The annual, international exhibition of contemporary art will host over 200 galleries this week, making it one of the largest shows in the country.

Eric Carle, children’s author of over 70 books including the well known “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Brown, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” was featured as an opening exhibit at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend.
