• Open Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday to Friday, noon to 5 p.m.

• Visit the Miles gallery: According to curator Dan Chudzinski, for Hardie Gramatky, illustration and storytelling was not just a profession, it was a way of life.

In 2017, the Mazza Museum acquired a large percentage of the original works of art, preliminary drawings and manuscripts by Hardie Gramatky. In addition to the initial shipment, the Museum received his personal studio furniture and art supplies, with which he created his fourteen beloved picture books and countless art paintings.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to experience the essence of the artist, from his first sparks of inspiration through his storyboards and manuscripts, to the original paintings and his final published work.
