Introducing Mo Willems
The Kennedy Center's first Education Artist-in-Residence
Enthusiastic silliness. A voice that sparks creativity for all ages. Beloved works with endearing characters. The Kennedy Center is proud to announce our very first Education Artist-in-Residence is someone whose work pushes creative boundaries and makes it fun: Emmy Award–winning writer and number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Mo Willems.
The creator of The Pigeon series, Knuffle Bunny, and Elephant & Piggie, Mo will develop and present multidisciplinary programming and performances across the Kennedy Center including theater, jazz, dance, classical music, comedy, digital experience, and outreach over the next two years. Audiences will play, participate, and create with cross-genre experiences and world premieres seen nowhere else.
