Mary GrandPre, Harry Potter,
The first look at Mary GrandPre's new Harry Potter exhibit in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is now online. The report contains numerous images, and a brief discription of the experience of being at the exhibit.
I spent my time circling the room looking at piece after piece. All but one piece, the chess scene, were pencil sketches. Some were familiar because they were used in the books or prints have been available for purchase, but some where completely new. I laughed a little inside at the "School of Magic" covers, thinking to myself what an awful title that would have been. I loved each drawing as my eyes searched each piece for every little detail.
