Arlene Holtz to participate in panel discussion at the Michener Museum
Arlene Holtz, former Principal at Wilson Middle School, will join the panel discussion at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA on Wednesday Oct 4, 2017, from 7 to 8:30. She will contribute to the panel, "School Art Collections: Reflecting on the School Community and Their Relevance Today" as Principal of a school which had a collection of 67 paintings, including well known Pennsylvania Impressionists and African-American artists Dox Thrash and Henry O. Tanner. Nine of these paintings are in the exhibit "Dedicated, Displayed, Discovered: Celebrating the Region's Art Collections." The curator for the exhibit, Adrienne Neszmelyi-Romano, completed her Masters' Thesis at Tyler on the Wilson collection. All the paintings were removed from Wilson against the community's wishes a decade ago and placed in storage.
