The Exhibition
Patricia Polacco is well known for her beautifully written and illustrated books that weave stories from her life into pages that have captured the imaginations of generations of readers. A+ for Educators: Illustrations by Patricia Polacco highlights a selection of her books that celebrate and honor educators that made a difference in her life. Each book addresses a piece of Patricia’s childhood, from bullying, to learning difficulties, to teachers that pushed her to be her very best. Her books are honest and sometimes raw, exposing themes or issues that can be difficult to confront. This collection of stories is a striking reminder of the importance that good educators can play in a child’s life. The exhibition features original art for Thank you, Mr. Falker, An A from Miss Keller, The Art of Miss Chew, The Lemonade Club, The Junkyard Wonders, and Mr. Wayne’s Masterpiece. The exhibition runs through May 12, 2019.
 
A+ for Educators is underwritten by the Folkert Family Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
 
The Muskegon Museum of Art is located at 296 W. Webster Ave., in downtown Muskegon. Visit www.muskegonartmuseum.org for more information.
