Art of the Word 2  - In the "Art of the Word 2" exhibition, the Fresno Art Museum honors two Fresno literary icons and five visual artists who have illustrated their words over the past 20 years. Featured on the walls of the Contemporary Gallery are excerpted writings from children's books by U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera and Carnegie Medalist Gary Soto and some of the illustrations their words inspired. The exhibiting artists illustrated the words of either Herrera or Soto, creating pictures to enhance the stories by the respective writer. They include non-fiction, fiction, and fantasy. The artists include Joe Cepeda ("Big Bushy Mustache" by Soto), Raúl Colón ("Portraits of Hispanic American Heroes" by Herrera), Elizabeth Gómez ("The Upside Down Boy: El niño de Cabeza" by Herrera), Susan Guevara ("Chato's Kitchen," "Chato and the Party Animals" and "Chato Goes Cruisin'" by Soto), and Ed Martinez ("Too Many Tamales" by Soto).
