The packed exhibition schedule at the Delaware Art Museum features three main exhibitions.

The first is "Wonder and Whimsy: The Illustrations of W. Heath Robinson."

Curator Margaretta Frederick said Robinson, a British illustrator, was well known in his lifetime, but has since faded in popularity here in America.

"The purpose of the show is to reintroduce to American audiences the work of this really talented British illustrator," she said.
