During a fifth grade field trip in 1966, Sharon Ellis’ class shuffled into the San Diego Museum of Art and listened dutifully as a docent told the children why they should admire a painting featuring a young girl as the subject. Sharon wasn’t so sure. She decided she didn’t like the painting–or the girl in the painting.
