We took a selection of work from the original bicentennial show, Dickens, A Celebration In Pictures to Poe Park Visitor Center Gallery. It was a great success. There were tourists from europe, including a college from the U.K., and several elementary school visits. Channel 12 news covered the exhibit too. Here's a look at some of the family events and school visits. Note: all artwork copywrite individual artists.
