Now Showing


Provo City Library visitors will get to view the art, creativity, and engineering behind some of their favorite pop-up books with the traveling exhibit Wizards of Pop: Robert Sabuda & Matthew Reinhart. This exhibit will be open at The Attic at Academy Square (located on the 4th Floor of the Library) from January 16 to March 27.  

Showcasing the works of Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart, this is the only traveling exhibition featuring the art of children’s pop-up books. An exciting balance of process pieces, initial sketches, concept pieces, preliminary art, prototypes, dummies, cut-paper collage artwork and nesting sheets, The Wizards of Pop: Sabuda & Reinhart, offers a great window into the world of pop-ups, and the precise engineering and detailed production techniques used to create them.  

Renowned for the extraordinary range and depth of their talents, and paper engineering skills, artists Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart have created many bestselling books together, as well as separately, some of which are featured in this show. No matter where you are from or how old you are, these books are sure to capture your attention. From Sabuda & Reinhart’s first collaboration on YOUNG NATURALISTS POP-UP HANDBOOK: BEETLES, and their last collaborative Encyclopedia series, to their solo pop-up book works such as Sabuda’s THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, PETER PAN, and ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND; and Reinhart’s STAR WARS, CINDERELLA, and THE JUNGLE BOOK, this exhibition has something for everyone.  

Transforming the gallery into a magical land of pop-ups, fantasy and wizardry, pop-ups in Plexiglas display cases in between the sketches, dummies, paper collages and trial pieces that the duo have engineered, this exhibition showcases creations that you can only dream of and draw you into adventures that you can only imagine. 

This exhibit will open on January 16 and will remain open until March 27. Venue hours are Monday through Friday from 3:30 pm until 9:00 pm. The Attic at Academy Square is located on the 4th Floor of the Provo City Library, accessible only by elevator.  

This exhibition was organized by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, Abilene, Texas.
