This is the last week to see a pop-up student exhibition at our art library! The Education Department’s K–12 team worked with Central High School this year to examine William Glackens’s work, as well as the living collection in Merion. Thirty art students from Central toured the art collection on the Parkway and the arboretum in Merion and created the landscape paintings on view through March. Free; no reservations required.
