Held in New York City, The Carle Honors is the Museums annual benefit gala. At the heart of the Honors are four awards celebrating individuals whose creative vision and dedication are an inspiration to everyone who values picture books and their role in arts education and literacy. The awards, selected each year by a committee chaired by Leonard S. Marcus, founder of the Honors, recognize individuals in four distinct forms:

    Artist, for lifelong innovation in the field;
    Mentor, editors, designers, and educators who champion the art form;
    Angel, whose generous resources are crucial to making picture book art exhibitions, education programs, and related projects a reality; and
    Bridge, individuals who have found inspired ways to bring the art of the picture book to larger audiences through work in other fields.
