Rush before it’s too late. Wonderful exhibition about Saint-Exupery’s Le Petit Prince lasts only until next Sunday Sept 16. 2012 at Dongdaemun Art Plaza
The Little Prince (in French: Le Petit Prince) – a short novel from French writer and air pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupery was first published in 1943. It is both the most read and translated French book and for good reason: beyond the years past, it retains a fresh, touching, moving appeal for its candid views of the adults world through the child eyes of the Little Prince. The book is actually as much a child story with its naive figures and beautiful water painting – and it indeed appeals to children of all ages – as it speaks to grown-ups too for its spiritual and philosophical thoughts.
The exhibition is now in its final week. So be sure to mark it a top priority until September 16th. There are two parts in separate halls within the area of Dongdaemun History and Cultural Park – just opposite Migliore and Doota Department Stores.
In the event hall, you will find on display original illustrations of the Little Prince – as well as various drawings from the author. The Hall is decorated in great taste with artworks from Korean artists, such as kids statues and miniature airplanes under the ceiling.
The second part in the Design Gallery is a playing and learning area. There young visitors can watch video, read books, do some craft and pencil drawings. You can also take pictures of your little ones in a ‘Petit Prince’ dress ^^
