The Carle Honors is the Museum's annual benefit gala, held at Guastavino's, a stunning venue at the 59th Street Bridge in New York. At the heart of the Honors are four awards celebrating individuals whose creative vision and dedication are an inspiration to everyone who values picture books and their role in arts education and literacy. The awards, selected each year by a committee chaired by Leonard S. Marcus, recognize individuals in four distinct forms: Artist, for lifelong innovation in the field; Mentor, editors, designers, and educators who champion the art form; Angel, whose generous resources are crucial to making picture book art exhibitions, education programs, and related projects a reality; and Bridge, individuals who have found inspired ways to bring the art of the picture book to larger audiences through work in other fields.

AUCTION

The Carle Honors Art Auction, a key fundraiser for the event, features original works of art donated by some of the industry's most celebrated artists. Bidding opens online on Friday, August 30. Bids can be placed online in advance of the event, or in-real time that night onsite or via absentee bid. The auction ends Thursday, September 26 at 9:00 sharp. See the list of our outstanding 2019 Auction Artists here.
