    Drawing from the work of contemporary illustrators, Tony DiTerlizzi, Leo and Diane Dillon, and Ian Schoenherr, as well as historical works from Delaware Art Museum's Howard Pyle collection, this exhibition takes a look at the fastasy medieval realms of some of our beloved young adult reads. From magical creatures, castle complexes, and images of knighthood, prepare to be transported into re-imaginations of the medieval world that reflect contemporary America's changing understanding of gender equality, cultural identity, disability, and difference.
