Raúl Colón is the author illustrator of IMAGINE!, a wordless picture book about a boy who finds himself called, perhaps beckoned even, to the art he finds in the Museum of Modern Art. He is drawn into the art and then he draws the art out into his world. It’s a book with a certain kind of magic, and I think you’ll find that the magic lies in Raúl’s own story of finding his way to art and to the great works. Raúl talks about worrying at points in his life that the sense of wonder toward the world could get lost as he progressed through life. But it's that sense of justice and injustice, instilled at a young age, that continues to inform Raúl's work today.
