Exhibition for Mary Jo Manus

"For the past seven years, I've been working with students in grades kindergarten through fifth, and I feel that I've been blessed with these opportunities to bring art history to life for them. I try to always utilize a hands-on approach and inspire in such a way that enlightens and delights them. The wonderful blend of student personalities prompted me to write stories about their trips to museums and other adventures. Thus, I began imagining whimsical characters, their visits to museums and consequent letters to famous artists. Each of my furniture pieces, painted with an art history theme, is accompanied by a book of these imaginary visits and letters. What better way to provide background information on a piece that the child would be exposed to every day!"
