My Monticello: An Exhibition of Student Art
My Monticello: An Exhibition of Student Art includes artwork from over 300 third-grade students from Charlottesville public schools who visited Monticello on a mission to explore Jefferson’s gardens. Inspired by his passion for ordered knowledge, students created a Garden Book page filled with their own scientific recordings and artistic observations. The public is invited to attend an opening celebration on Saturday, January 12 at 1 pm. Participating students will receive free family passes to visit Monticello during exhibition weekends in January. The program, now in its eighth year, is supported by a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation in partnership with Monticello’s Garden Explorers initiative.
