The exhibition will be open until January 2, 2022.
ODESSA, Texas – The latest exhibit at the Ellen Noel Art Museum is open for the next few months. It pays homage to one of the oldest stories of all time.
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol turns 156 this year. You will also be able to see how the book has been translated since then.
The fairy tale would turn the page on film adaptations, including 35 different versions of the book, and 56 artists from around the world including Salvador Dali and John Tenniel.
“Our curator Daniel Zeiss organized this exhibition for everyone to enjoy,” said Ashley Flores, Director of Development and Marketing for Ellen Noel. “He worked really hard on it, he contacted some of the local artists and had to bring this exhibition to life.”
Each book on display has a QR code that you can use to scan with your phone, and you can read each one in the palm of your hand.
You can also find pieces that show who the real Alice actually was. There are also photo opportunities with the characters from Wonderland.
“I love to see parents sharing this memory with their children who walk through the exhibit as they look back at how the book was first illustrated and how it has now been illustrated in 2020,” said Flores .
After all, as Alice says, “What good is a book, without pictures or conversation?”
If you would like to see the exhibit, it will be until January 2, 2022. If you take photos, post them on social media using the hashtag #FindingAliceENAM
