A Reception Story-Mosaics in Action

tesseraeA wonderful story from my in-box this morning sent from Cheryl Bennett, the Director at 2nd City Council Art Gallery:

I thought you would appreciate this story.

A father, who brought his 5- and 2-year-old to the reception, called here to tell us what happened after they left.  When they got home, the 5-year-old announced that he was going to make a mosaic for his mother since she was unable to attend.

He very carefully took the mosaic invitation and cut out all the individual squares.  He then re-pasted them on a piece of paper and wrote “I love you Mommy.”

I am assuming that most 5-year-olds don’t know what mosaics are.  I love this art inspired story and the thoughtfulness of the little boy. Never underestimate the effect of what you do – it is truly the ripple-in-the-pond effect.  Thank you.

Thank YOU, Cheryl, for sharing this!

This *obviously inspiring* show is up until August 5th.  Go see it!
