• Open Sunday, 1-4 p.m., Wed-Fri., Noon-5 p.m.

Visit Miles Gallery: According to curator Dan Chudzinski, for Hardie Gramatky, illustration and storytelling were not merely a profession, they were a way of life.

In 2017, the Mazza Museum acquired a large percentage of Hardie Gramatky’s original artwork, preliminary drawings, and manuscripts. As a special addition to the initial shipment, the Museum received his personal studio furniture and art supplies, with which he created all fourteen of his beloved picture books and countless fine 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.
