Foster Children’s Art to Be Featured in Phoenix Art Museum Exhibit

Posted By on August 9, 2018

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, a nonprofit that aims to heal homeless and abused children through artistic expression, will have an art installation on view at the Phoenix Art Museum from August 10 through October 15.

The installation titled “To Be Me” was created as part of the Free Arts Professional Artists Series in collaboration with the art museum and Phoenix-based artist Shelly Love.

“The girls enjoyed their time at Phoenix Art Museum and put many hours of hard work into their projects,” said executive director of Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona Alicia Sutton Campbell. “We have a long standing partnership with Phoenix Art Museum and we’re very thankful for their willingness to work with our young artists. This is one of the programs the Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation funded with their $2.5 million donation to Free Arts last year. We are so appreciative of their support too.”

During the series, girls living in a group home for children in foster care spent six weeks at the Phoenix Art Museum gaining an understanding of the creative process behind the museum’s current photography exhibit “To Be Thirteen.”
