Wanda Gag House Association
2010 Fiscal Year Funding Amount
$6,757

Three original mid-20th-century works of art by Flavia Gag were restored and properly exhibited. 

Flavia Gag (1907-1978) was the sister of Wanda Gag, the well-known children’s literature author (Millions of Cats) and artist.
Flavia's books and her paintings were eclipsed by her more famous sister, Wanda, but Flavia developed her own style and medium,
which was unlike either her father (Anton Gag) or her sister.
