About the exhibit:

While he was a student at Haverford College, Andy Simon wanted to learn ways to better the situation of his fellow human beings. He realized that art with a positive touch could present concepts and visions of a more fortunate world.

In his mixed-media performance, "For Goodness Sake: Art With a Positive Touch," Andy will sing his original songs, read his poetry, a short story and show paintings he has created since graduation. The performance will include examples of "Romantic", "Dental", "Imperial", "Quasi-Shakespearean" and "Pacific" Art.

An exhibition of his new "Interactive Paintings" together with other recent work will complement this event. "Interactive Paintings" are a novel art form, where the viewer can interact with the works of art by entering his name or writing his opinion directly on the painting.
