Museum director Bruce Etchison and the noted Philadelphia art critic Dorothy Grafly examine the January 1950 edition of Miss Grafly’s publication Art in Focus. Grafly was known for her publication of art criticism Art in Focus. Grafly judged the Museum’s 18th Annual Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition in 1951. While in town to judge the competition, the Philadelphia critic delivered a lecture on the artist in the modern world.

The Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition began in 1933, just two years after the Museum opened to the public. In its first year, there was no independent jury, but Museum staff quickly saw the value of having a well-known individual serve as the judge for the competition.
