Artist Maya Schock, born in 1928, studied both dance and acting in her native Japan. After marrying American Floyd Schock and moving to Central Pennsylvania, she studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Maya converted the building at Second and Reily Streets in Harrisburg into the DŌSHI Gallery for Contemporary Art and Japanese tea shop in 1972.
