Art, Language & Play features original art work by Stephen T. Johnson, an author and illustrator of children’s books who has been nationally published and exhibited. Johnson’s art forges connections between words, objects, and ideas.

Much of his work is characterized by an interest in the alphabet and language, which began with his book Alphabet City, a Caldecott Honor book, and A is for Art: An Abstract Alphabet, named the New York Times Illustrated Book of the Year.

Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
