About Marc Brown:

Marc Brown has had many jobs… truck driver, short-order cook, TV art director, and a college professor. When the college closed he was rescued by an aardvark who appeared one night while telling his son a bedtime story. That bedtime story became his first book, ARTHUR’S NOSE. Then a series of books which became the longest running animated children’s program in history. He is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, winner of three Emmy Awards, the George Foster Peabody Award and most recently, the Television Critics Award for the episode, Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone. Next year he celebrates two anniversaries, 25 years of Arthur on PBS and 45 years of children around the world reading Arthur books.

The exhibition, Believe in Yourself: What we Learned from Arthur is sponsored in part by Nellie and Robert Gipson, WCNY, and WMHT.

Organizer Fenimore Art Museum

Organizer of Live ZOOM Storytime and Q&A with Arthur Illustrator & Author Marc Brown!

Nestled on the western shore of Otsego Lake, housed in an elegant 1930s neo-Georgian mansion, the Fenimore Art Museum presents a perspective on the heritage and history of America through art.

The beauty of the museum setting is matched by the quality of the collections it houses, including some of the nation’s finest examples of American landscape, history and genre paintings, American folk art, photography and American Indian art.

William Sidney Mount, Thomas Cole, Gilbert Stuart, Benjamin West, E.L. Henry, Eastman Johnson, Thomas Waterman, John Wesley Jarvis, Grandma Moses and Ralph Fasanella are all represented in the museum’s holdings.

The Fenimore Art Museum is dedicated to integrating history with art history and including under-appreciated genres, primarily American folk art and American Indian art, in a broad and progressive American canon. The Fenimore Art Museum seeks to honor the extraordinary ability of ordinary people to shape American culture.
