'I Spy' Photographer's Work To Appear at the Bruce

GREENWICH, Conn. – “I Spy” children series fans can view photographs, models, images and videos in a retrospective exhibition of the Connecticut author’s work at the Bruce Museum.

The exhibit, “Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic,” offers a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process since 1973. Wick began his career in the 1970s as a commercial product photographer and went on to experiment and explore optical illusions, especially involving photography and its effects on three-dimensional objects and scenes.

His collaboration with writer Jean Marzollo in 1991 spawned the popular children’s series "I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles," which invites readers to search for objects hidden in plain sight. Wick’s picture books are illustrated with familiar toys, household objects, shells, hardware and beads, blended into whimsical scenes illustrating complex stories and visual riddles.

Two images from Wick’s newest release, "Can You See What I See? Toyland Express," are featured in the exhibition. This eighth title in the bestselling search-and-find series follows the engaging story of a wooden toy train that travels from the toymaker’s carving table to become a beloved plaything and then a forgotten “toy in the attic,” only to be rescued at a tag sale and given a second chance to inspire a child’s imagination.

The Bruce Museum is located at 1 Museum Drive in Greenwich. General admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and students, and free for children under 5 and museum members. Free admission to all on Tuesdays. For information, call the Bruce Museum at 203-869-0376.
