Knowing who the real Bob Marley is

For all we hear about kids today not knowing about popular culture, we can take heart that at least one eighth-grader in Portland knows that Bob Marley is not just some white-guy comedian with a bizarre "Mainah" accent.

We know this because the Portland Museum of Art is celebrating National Youth Art Month in March, and just sent out an announcement of their student-artwork exhibit, which will be on show from February 28 to March 29.

As part of their announcements, the PMA always sends artwork (which is one reason the PMA releases are among our faves here in the office - random art shows up in our e-mail!

This particular image - a mixed-media portrait of the real Bob Marley - is by Keegan Kilbride, an eighth-grader at Portland's Lyman Moore Middle School.
