This sounds like a really fun activity. I miss being within a reasonable train ride from NYC - and other cities with great museums and galleries.

We spent a few years in Iowa City shortly after the cartoonist Berkeley Breathed lived there. He called the library there “the swellest public library in the known universe.” I don’t disagree.

One cool feature was the Westgate Collection of original art by children’s book illustrators, hanging on the walls of the kids’ section of the library. I don’t know if the collection has work from the very latest publications as described in the linked article, but it was lots of fun and pretty impressive.

I love that Adam Rex art in the The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors book previewed with that last picture. What a cool art show.

As a fellow enthusiast I feel compelled to share that a there is a contemporary illustration for children competition since 2003, accessible via Web, hosted in Portugal. Check it at “http://www.ilustrarte.net/EN/ilustrarte2018/ilustrarte18.htm”. The previous years section can show you the variety and quality of the works under competition. And while you are at it check the wonderful work from “https://www.planetatangerina.com/en
