Brought to Crystal City by PBS (in partnership with JBG SMITH), Just the Way You Are by Wayne Brezinka is a unique and interactive mixed media portrait experience of Mister Rogers incorporating both two and three-dimensional elements. Through the use of objects, artifacts and memorabilia assembled together, these items craft extraordinary story lines within this artistic profile of America’s most beloved neighbor, Mister Rogers.

The mirror allows the viewer to see their reflection appearing next to Mister Rogers while adults may have to lower themselves in a childlike state to fit within the frame in order to be seen.

Special thanks to Amy Hollingsworth, Tim Madigan and Kathy and Beth Usher for contributing their personal photos, artifacts and memorabilia for use within the portrait.

60 x 48 inches overall, a multiple of cut-and-pasted printed paper, collage, and mixed media on wood panel. All rights reserved (c) 2019 Wayne Brezinka.
