The South Dakota Art Museum has a new installment of Paul Goble original illustrations on display from his award-winning children's book, "The Lost Children." This new exhibit of vibrant illustrations will be on display through Sunday, April 1, 2012.

The Blackfoot Indian legend tells the story of six orphaned brothers who overcome the adversities of scorn and neglect. Though their circumstances are bleak, the will of the boys remains strong through the companionship of dogs and the faithfulness of family. Goble's splashes of color and intricately-detailed nature give the feeling of hope that ultimately leads to the brothers' transformation into the star cluster known as Pleiades.

Blackfoot legends are told in a straightforward manner to let readers or listeners envision the story through their imaginations. Goble's recounting of the legend uses symbolism with his illustrations of butterflies and stormy or sunny weather. "The Lost Children" is one of 30 books written and illustrated by Goble.

"I feel that I have seen and learned many wonderful things about Indian people which most people would never have the opportunity to experience," said Goble. "I simply wanted to express and to share these things which I love so much."

Goble has received the Caldecott Medal and The Library of Congress' Children's Book of the Year Award. His books have also been featured on the children's television series "Reading Rainbow."

Goble, who was born in Europe, became a U.S. citizen in 1984. After living in Lincoln, Neb., he moved to Rapid City in 1998. Living on the Great Plains enabled Goble to explore his long-held respect and fascination for Native American spirituality and culture. Through his illustrations, he brings to life the rich colors, customs and surroundings of Native Americans.

"The Lost Children" is available at the museum's gift store along with many of Goble's other titles including "The Boy and His Mud Horses," the most recent book written and illustrated by Goble.

The museum's hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The museum is closed for all state holidays and Sundays, January through March.
