From 1954 to 1979, the magical Land of Makebelieve, the masterpiece of Arto Monaco, captivated visitors young and old. Today, Arto Monaco’s legacy is kept alive through the ongoing work of the Arto Monaco Historical Society. To learn about the next challenge — the creation of a park in Upper Jay as a permanent memorial to Arto, come see the exhibit Imagining Makebelieve at the Tahawus Lodge Center’s Windows Gallery in Au Sable Forks, ongoing through Labor Day. Here, you can view park plans, leave your comments, or share your memories in the guest book.
TLC Windows Gallery hours are: Thursdays, 2 to 5 p.m., Fridays, 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturday 1 to 5 p.m. or by appointment by calling 646-734-7151. Also visit www.artomonaco.org.
