(no name) artists create portraits for disadvantaged children living in the United States
Purpose of Memory Portraits
“The Memory Portrait Project is a unique initiative in which artists create portraits (drawings, paintings, graphic design, etc) for children living in challenging situations. Given that children who have been abandoned, neglected, abused, or orphaned usually have few personal keepsakes, the purpose of the portraits is to provide them with a special memory of their youth and to help honor their heritage and identity.”
The concept of this project was based on The Memory Project.
The portraits were delivered in the Spring 2011. The recipient is a non-profit charity/children’s home that will remain unnamed in order to respect the privacy of the children. If you wish to learn more, please contact us.
“I am almost in disbelief that your organization is going to do portraits of my students…I have researched your organization and am so thankful and touched at all the wonderful work you do! Thanks so much for you time. I am deeply grateful for your consideration.” ~ Christine, Art Teacher at Children’s Home
“Sherry and everyone involved– I just wanted to say thank you so much for the opportunity to paint this portrait for Darren. I hope that he and all of the kids love their portraits. Thank you for all you are doing!” ~ Corina, Artist
