Try Being Nice
Illustrated Reflections & Protest Signs from 2018
Mo Willems and his studio assistant
Occasionally during the roller coaster that was 2018, Mo Willems pulled out his pen and markers as a way to absorb, reflect, and share his thoughts on the events of the day. Try Being Nice collects many of these drawings along with a few signs created for various protests Mo attended throughout the year.(
All of Mo’s proceeds for this show will be donated to The Northampton Education Foundation to help supplement programs and activities for the community’s public-school students.
Please join R. Michelson galleries for the Opening Reception of Try Being Nice on Friday, March 8th from 6-8 pm (in conjunction with Northampton’s Arts Night Out).
Mo Willems will not be signing books at this event.
On Tuesday, Nov. 27, please join a global movement by giving locally.
Your donation to NEF on this day will help all Northampton public schools
– and will jump-start a season of philanthropy that strengthens our entire community.
