Eric Carle show held over in Tacoma

More than 20,000 people have filed through Tacoma Art Museum to visit “Beyond Books: The Independent Art of Eric Carle” since it opened in April. If you weren’t one of them, you have another chance: the show has been extended two weeks, and will close July 21.

The show spotlights paintings, sculptures, painted glass, collages, linocuts and sketches that Carle — best-known for “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and other books for wee folk — has been creating privately for years. Some of Carle’s book art is in the show, too.

Also extended: the museum’s Instagram contest, which invites you to submit photos “of the art you see every day in the lines and colors of the streets where you live.” Upload  pictures to Instagram with the tag #253StreetArt by July 21. The winner will receive a signed copy of “Beyond Books: The Independent Art of Eric Carle” and a membership to the museum.
