Have a seat at the edge of the bed and relive your fondest childhood memories with the world’s silliest bear–Winnie the Pooh. The Winnie the Pooh: Exploring a Classic exhibition is in its last weeks at the High Museum of Art, and you don’t want to miss it.
I took a moment to step back into the Hundred Acre Wood to find the characters and stories that I grew up with waiting for me. This exhibition is a delight and shows the process and history behind A.A. Milne’s beloved stories. We even see how Christopher Robin, Milne’s son in real life, inspired some of the antics and imaginative narratives found in some of his books. My favorite was noting when Christopher Robin climbed the staircase (with poor Pooh’s head dragging along the steps), it signified going back into reality. He was leaving the Hundred Acre Wood and all of his imaginings behind until he would arise the next day. I thought that was simply divine. And, truly, it was part of the reason why these stories were so successful. They were simplistic words with so much meaning behind them. Remembering what it was like to be young is still very important, and A.A. Milne never wanted us to forget that. This exhibition is here until September 2, 2018, so there’s still time before the book closes. The exhibition is a family-friendly experience, with interactive displays and creative ways to capture and keep our attention. I even got a chance to be a part of the story.
