Organized by Krannert Art Museum and the Phillips Collection, Washington, D. C.
Exhibition sponsored in part by Fox Development Corporation

When We Were Young juxtaposed selected childhood works of preeminent historical artists with modern and contemporary children's drawings to demonstrate their visual richness and inventiveness and to explore the criteria used for assessing prodigious artistic talent in the very young.
