The New Art Center in Newton is hosting an exhibit this month that highlights the artistic side of children's literature.

Focusing on the work of thirteen contemporary artists, the exhibition includes art from the book "Punk Farm" by illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka, which was recently acquired by DreamWorks as a possible computer-animated feature. In the story, farm animals start a rock band and perform at the first animal band music festival: “Livestock.”

The exhibition opened yesterday and through May 20 at the Center, which is located at 61 Washington Park in Newtonville. A gala opening reception is planned for this Friday night. For more information, visit the center online.
