Speaking Out

An Education at Hand

On recent visits to the Arthur Ross Gallery in the Fisher Fine Arts Library I've been struck by how fortunate we Pennsylvanians are to have this opportunity to study Saul Steinberg's brilliant and witty commentary on the American scene, its collective attitudes, foibles and mores.

To any of you teachers who think you know all about our society: go to the Gallery and let Steinberg broaden your mind with his sometimes subtly gentle, sometimes broadly acerbic art. And, even better, invite your students to share the experience with you. Aren't they here to be educated?
