Event Details

Memory Project, a non-profit organization based in Middleton, has created more than 100,000 portraits of and for children around the world who face challenging situations. With the help of UNICEF in Jordan, the group recently arranged for 3,000 U.S. high-school art students to create portraits of young Syrian refugees as gifts for them. This exhibit will display some of the portraits that were delivered to a refugee camp, along with photos of the special delivery.

Meet Ben Schumaker, director of the Memory Project at a reception on Wednesday, October 25, from 6-6:30 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served and a brief talk will follow.
