DUNEDIN – The David L. Mason Children’s Art Museum at the Dunedin Fine Art Center picks up the theme “One Planet – One People” with a new look and selection of interactive educational activities for children of all ages. Included are a cave for cave drawing, a pyramid and a medieval fortress. The exhibition will be displayed until Aug. 1, 2006.

The art center transforms itself into an exploratory journey through the architecture, marketplaces, customs and rituals of diverse cultures. Leading the cultural investigation is an exhibition of stone lithographs by John L. Doyle entitled “The Great Human Race.” Doyle divides the prints into four suites: The Builders, The Medicine Men, The Counselors and The Merchants. Each suite takes a cross-cultural look at shared cultural customs.

Roland Poska adds more than his printing expertise to this journey. The Art Center will display a suite of prints “The Great Human Race” until Friday, Oct. 21. In addition, visitors will be given a chance to walk along the “deckle edge,” a place where forces seen and unseen, meet or part. The art center explores this territory with him in both a suite of stone lithograph prints and an exhibition of his signature “Papestries,” a term derived from the combination of “paper” and “tapestry” which alludes to the similarity his process shares with weaving.

Tours are available that incorporate the gallery exhibition to give children a cohesive learning experience. Special events such as a sleep-over and mini-masters workshop also are scheduled.

Admission is $4; DFAC members admitted free. The Dunedin Fine Art Center is at 1143 Michigan Blvd. Call 298-DFAC.
