The WYSO Foundation in association with the Mauch Chunk Museum and Cultural Center is excited to exhibit a selection of original paintings and sculptures by the artist Frank "Wyso" Wysochansky.

WYSO was a man driven to tell the story of Pennsylvania coal miners. Using pen, ink, watercolor, oil,. crayon and sculptural forms, he captured the life of the coal miner by documenting the tools and working conditions of the anthracite coal mines of Northeastern Pennsylvania, as well as the simple life and modest means of the miners' families.
