Artist Donates Original Paintings to 72 Volusia Schools; Art Reception to be held May 20

5/11/2017

​Nationally known artist Don Kennedy, who is also a former Volusia County teacher and guidance counselor, plans to donate one of his original paintings to every Volusia County public school.  This collection of 72 semi-abstract and expressionistic paintings reflect Mr. Kennedy’s love for color as well as his generous spirit.

While working as a guidance counselor Mr. Kennedy helped many students cope with their feelings.  Now he plans to spread visual happiness throughout the school district by leaving a legacy of beauty for future generations.  He believes that what one feels is equal to what one sees.

The Museum of Arts and Sciences, Volusia County Schools and Don Kennedy have joined together to foster a love and appreciation for art among our youth.  An opening reception for A Legacy of Beauty for Volusia County Schools: The Paintings of Don Kennedy will be held at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, 352 S. Nova Road, Daytona Beach on Saturday, May 20, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served courtesy of FUTURES Foundation.
