Join Tauby the Art Detective as he explores the Taubman Museum of Art's permanent collection and comes across the work, Portrait of Martha Gregory Knisely by Ellis Silvette.

Using clues from the painting and some help from his friend Mr. Pedro with Southwest Virginia Ballet, Tauby discovers that paintings can tell stories about a time in history and the people who lived during that time.

Tauby and Mr. Pedro also share how to do the Charleston, a popular dance from the 1920s when Martha's portrait was painted. Learn along with them!
