ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s High Museum of Art is inviting visitors into a colorful world populated by playful animals and imaginative children.

“I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle” opens Saturday. It features more than 80 collages from 16 books by the author of children’s favorites like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Grouchy Ladybug.”  Carle’s bright images explore themes including childhood, nature and journeys.

The exhibition is specially designed for children. The collages are hung just a few feet off the ground, and a scavenger hunt helps kids engage with the art.

The works in the exhibition span five decades. They come from the collection of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts. The High is the only venue where the exhibition will be shown.
