Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Open through July 1, 2017

Nationally known artist and retired Volusia County teacher and guidance counselor, Don Kennedy plans to leave a legacy of beauty for future generations. Kennedy believes that what one feels is equal to what one sees. While working as a guidance counselor Mr. Kennedy helped many students cope with their feelings. Now, he plans to donate one of his original paintings to every Volusia County School as a means to spread visual happiness throughout the school district. This collection of 72 semi-abstract and expressionistic paintings reflect Mr. Kennedy’s love for color as well as his generous spirit. 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.
