"The show’s overall focus is all about helping kids of all ages unlock their creativity and imagination. In these days of budget cuts for so many institutions who are struggling to educate, present and promote art the need for opportunities to encourage the discovery of the joy of what art can bring us is more important than ever," said Marderosian.
