1964 lithograph of father and child by john wilson

Images of the Madonna and Child are common throughout the history of art, but those of the father and child are not. John Wilson (1922–2015) was a rare artist who explored this theme. Wilson, who lived in Brookline for over 50 years, was deeply devoted to his family, and to the relationship between fathers and children. This multimedia exhibit includes both original pieces and information about sculptures permanently installed in the area.
