“Pick UP Your Pencils, Begin is a gigantic bell curve 28′ wide and 15′ tall about the impact of standardized testing on our educational system.”
Harriete (https://destructivetesting.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/artist-of-the-day-harriete-estel-berman-san-mateo-california) worked on this project over a period of 4 1/2 years! Calling it a monumental undertaking would not be overstating it!

The first public exhibition was at Anita Seipp Gallery, Castilleja School where it was photographed for the article in American Craft.
