The first ever Made New Arts and Partnership for Strong Families Foster Youth Exhibition opened at Gallery Protocol, Friday June 9th, 2017. In total we displayed 67 artworks from 24 of our MNA Foster Youth that participated in the Winter/Spring Session of the classes. All pieces were sold with 100% of the purchases going back to the kids who participated as a means to encourage their potential, and value their effort.
Partnership for Strong Families was able to display the creativity of these youth to potential adoptive families, displaying the resilience and ingenuity of the students in the MNA Foster Youth Program for public view. We are all so thankful for the support from all those who attended, and purchased work. Your presence and interest let these kids know they have a purpose, a voice, and a place in the community during a time of transition, and healing.
