Original Children's Book Illustrations by Nancy Winslow Parker,” which opens at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers on July 5, does just that. The exhibition features more than 40 of Parker's original drawings for the books “Bugs” (1987) and “Frogs, Toads, Lizards, and Salamanders” (1990).Some drawings are playful and humorous; others are scientifically instructive – but all of them pique the viewer's interest about some of the most diverse species on our planet.
