Dear Park West Gallery,
"Sometimes the sweetest moments are those that happen spontaneously. Park West Gallery is responsible for one of those sweet moments at our school, St. Mary Interparochial School.
Last January 31, 2011, through your collaboration with Art-Reach, Cara Huffman brought one of your artists, Marcus Glenn, to visit our 8th Grade Class. Mr. Glenn engaged the attention of all the students in the telling of his personal story. We learned of the support of his mother and his persistence in following his dream to become an artist. He talked about his unique style and the hidden meanings behind his paintings.
Your generous donation of two paintings, A Dance at the Gallery and Girrrl, You Gotta See This One, allowed the students to see and 'touch' the paintings first-hand. These two paintings will be auctioned off in the Spring and will help to fund our art program. One of our lucky families will be the proud owner of an original Marcus Glenn.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
