Walter Wick is the co-creator of the I Spy

series, and therefore, gets my automatic vote for exhibits to go see this month. My kids have spent countless hours pouring over those books, and games. His new show at the Walters Art Museum will be top on our list.

And, a bit of trivia for Baltimoreans – Wick was directly inspired by the Walters' own Chamber of Wonders gallery for his recent book, Can You See What I See on a Scary, Scary Night?. 55 large scale photos will be on display, as well as some of the actual models that Wick uses to create his photo-illustrations. I'm guessing we will be there for hours, and hours, and hours, finding every last item that Walter Wick has hidden in his images. That could take about a million years. See you there!
