For nearly 40,000 years mankind has been contributing to a vast visual record of the human condition. Weaving creativity with convention, each generation of mark-makers would pass along to the next an evolving visual vocabulary that would eventually overcome barriers of time, distance, language, and culture. Today, art educators prepare new generations of creatives to contribute new chapters to this unique, ongoing epic. Legacy is a celebration of these educators.

Gallery 1261 has assembled an exhibit roster of highly-skilled artists whom are not only lauded for their artistic achievements, but are also acknowledged for their commitment to the betterment of contemporary art education. Please join us for this very special event.
