Fenimore Art Museum Presents "Believe In Yourself: What We Learned From Arthur"
The Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York is currently presenting the exhibition "Believe in Yourself: What We Learned from Arthur," an inside look at Marc Brown’s artwork and stories.
Next year Brown celebrates two anniversaries, 25 years of Arthur on PBS and 45 years of children around the world reading Arthur books. While Marc had many jobs early on, eventually 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."
Fenimore Director of Exhibitions, Chris Rossi joins us this morning along with man himself, Marc Brown.
