Art of the Pop-Up

Exhibit runs through January 9th.

About the artist...

Born and educated in Utah, David A. Carter moved to California and began his career here as a graphic designer and advertising illustrator in the 1970's. Employment with Intervisual Communications, Inc., introduced him to paper engineering and book design, and by 1987 he was working freelance as a popular author and illustrator of children's books. Carter has more than 80 published pop-up books including a popular children's collection on bugs (Simon & Schuster) and Horton Hears a Who Pop-Up! (Random House). Carter considers The Red Dot Series to be his greatest artistic accomplishment in the field of pop-up engineering. The series resulted from a dozen years of experimenting with pop-up structures that evolved into non-representative, spontaneous Modern Art forms-the minimalist sculptures in these five books.
