Art In The Park Descent Into Kitsch
By Simeon Drakich
My brothers and I just shake our heads over this glorified flea market.
Our mother, Sophia Mary Kletenchuk Drakich, earned a Masters in Restoration Art from the Centre of Creative Studies in Detroit. At the age of fourteen she won a scholarship to the Beaux-Art de Paris, but her parents wouldn’t let her go as it was post war France with no friends or family in the country.
Needless to say, however, she ingrained fine arts in us all.
