Human Body School at Peekskill Coffee House

Throughout the month of April, visit the Peekskill Coffee House to see our "Human Body School!" projects on display! 

From cover on

As the Director of Something Good In The World said in a post to parents and students, "The art show opening reception was pure fun. I loved it especially accompanied by the 'Human Body School' music of Talking Hands Talking Feet (which by the way is coming out on CD soon). My favorite was seeing customers and coffee house staff dancing around to the music."

About the art exhibit itself, she continues, "Each installation of the exhibit describes and demonstrates one of the human body systems, whether cardiovascular or respiratory, etc., as well as the senses. So what's amazing and beautiful is how certain 'Human Body School' songs match these exactly.If we could have, I would have loved to have mounted CD players with headphones, so that visitors to the exhibit could sit and listen to the music while viewing each aspect of the exhibit...It's at the Peekskill Coffee House throughout the month of April - so don't miss it!"
