The performing arts have long recognized and taken inspiration from great works of art. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Broadway musical, Sunday in the Park with George, paid tribute to artist Georges Seurat in months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. The song, Mona Lisa, written by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston describes Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait, Mona Lisa.

I'm elated to share the extraordinary art of Rachel Alvarez, a native of Salisbury, Maryland. She received her BFA in Painting and Photography from Salisbury University in 2002. Her original work has been exhibited at a number of local galleries, and her prints, notecards, and decals can be found in shops across the United States. Her work is inspired by her 2 children. Each piece in her collection was completed during their nap times and reflects her family’s love for backcountry drives, beach outings, and hikes in the woods.
