REACHING OUT/REACHING IN Celebrating Fine Art Faculty of the South Orange/Maplewood School District
Artists who are also educators is the focus in this exhibition. Many of the South Orange/Maplewood school district's art faculties are professional, exhibiting artists in their own right.

This is an exhibition of their professional art work.
