Reading, Writing & ?rithmetic -
Learning as it used to be
 
September 15 - October 27, 2007
Reception September 14, 5:30-7:30 PM
 
Before television, before video games and before Sesame Street, we learned
the basic 3 r¹s in a simpler way. This exhibition looks at writing manuals
going back all the way to the seventeenth century, early readers and
spellers, flash-cards and alphabet books, math and geometry tomes from the
turn-of-the-century, all what are now thought of as ³ancient² learning
tools.

Gallery Hours 10am - 6pm Monday thru Saturday
