90 Years of Winnie The Pooh: Exploring a Classic at the High Museum of Arts Monday 18 June, 2018

I am so excited to share with you all that Winnie the Pooh is currently at the High Museum of Arts in Atlanta for a summer exhibit. All of my childhood dream are coming true this year. I mentioned not too long ago how Disney is creating a live-action film of the upcoming Christopher Robin movie that will be out before the end of the summer. I am one of the biggest Winnie the Pooh fans in the world. 12 year old Kiwi is alive and well, as I got to explore first hand a classic of one of the best cartoons created. Winnie the Pooh as been around for 90 years, so young and young at heart have been in love this this loveable bear and friends for 9 decades. Who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh?

 

The stories of Winnie-the-Pooh—a much-loved bear with a weakness for honey—have delighted both children and adults for more than ninety years. Generations of readers have been captivated by the adventures of Christopher Robin and his bear, and today Pooh remains one of the most popular children’s characters of all time.

This exhibition, organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, explores the history and legacy of Pooh through original sketches, photographs, memorabilia, and letters. The exhibition also includes interactive elements that bring Shepard’s illustrations to life.

Pooh and his companions Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, and Roo were created by the writer A. A. Milne and illustrator E. H. Shepard. Their partnership combined Milne’s humorous wordplay with Shepard’s expressive drawings to create an extremely successful style of storytelling. Since Pooh first bumped down the stairs in 1926, millions of copies of Milne’s books have sold, and the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood have found a home in the collective imagination of readers worldwide. Winnie-the-Pooh Musical at the Alliance
Concurrently with the exhibition, the Alliance Theatre at The Woodruff Arts Center will present “Winnie-the-Pooh” (June 7–July 8, 2018), a musical based on Milne’s beloved stories. This collaboration is the High and the Alliance’s fourth in a series of exhibition and theatre productions based on the work of children’s book authors and artists.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR

Winnie-the-Pooh was the result of a fruitful collaboration between author A. A. Milne (British, 1882–1956) and illustrator E. H. Shepard (British, 1879–1976). Both Milne and Shepard had well-established careers by the time they started their partnership in the mid-1920s and had been introduced through Punch, a popular magazine that poked fun at politicians and British society through cartoons and humorous articles.
