“Through the Eyes of the Artist” is the brainchild of Hudson-based art historian Felicia Zavarella Stadelman. Originally funded by a grant from the Cleveland Museum of Art to bring art into the lives of school children, “Through the Eyes of the Artist” has evolved into a program for all ages interested in uncovering fascinating details about the world’s most renowned artists.
Each presentation is enhanced with music, prints and wonderful images to help tell the artist’s story. In addition, attendees receive an overview of the artist and a note-card memento.
