'Syd Hoff: Finding Home' Exhibition CLOSING
October 1st 2012 1:00pm - 9:00pm at Miami Beach Regional Library
Beloved children's book author and illustrator Syd Hoff made Miami Beach his home and there created his best-loved characters like Danny and the Dinosaur (1958) and Sammy the Seal (1959).
The Syd Hoff: Finding Home exhibition (6/14 - 10/1) is organized for the humorist's 2012 centennial and curated by Miami-based journalist Dina Weinstein. The exhibition traces the life, achievement and influences of the prolific cartoonist and author through the curator's visual aids and research. It consists of a series of creative "storyboards" composed of research notes, fact-finding footnotes, and humorous commentaries collected and written by Weinstein. Along with photographic reproductions, text panels, books, and video, the materials will trace Hoff's early career and development.
