Professional development through the advanced planning of themed exhibitions provides art instructors in Howard County, Maryland, the impetus for many of the ideas that may become artful problems presented to students. In this installment of the series Artful Collaborations, Stacey McKenna and Gino Molfino share their response for the spring 2001 county-wide exhibition based upon the commentary, editorial cartoons, and drawings by illustrator Edward Sorel. On September 1, 2000, the art teaching staff of the Howard County Public School System gathered at Mt. Hebron High in Ellicott City for professional development intended to set the direction for exhibitions for the new school year. Edward Sorel and his wife, Nancy, traveled from their home in the shadows of the World Trade Center in Manhattan to join the art teachers of Howard County and recall their collaborative efforts for First Encounters, A Book of Memorable Meetings. What had begun as a series of articles for The Atlantic Monthly in 1982 was published as a fully realized text in 1994. The genesis for First Encounters had come from the fictional Impossible Interviews written by Miguel Covarrubias and illustrated for Vanity Fair in the 1920s and 30s.
