Kids Care 28: The Art of Color and Light
About the Exhibition
Now in its twenty-eighth year, Woodmere’s annual exhibition, KIDS CARE, has touched the hearts of thousands of people in the Philadelphia area. Hundreds of children from schools across the Philadelphia region create art works as holiday gifts for people homebound with chronic illnesses.
This year’s theme, The Art of Color and Light, is inspired by Woodmere’s exhibition Impressionism: A View from Philadelphia, currently on view in Woodmere’s galleries. Students created an array of paintings, constructions, prints, collages, cards, and reliefs that convey how much “kids care.” Their artworks will be on exhibit through December 19th.
KIDS CARE is a partnership between Woodmere Art Museum, Philadelphia area schools, and MANNA (Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance). Following the exhibition, each artwork will be wrapped by volunteers and delivered by MANNA along with a holiday meal to people at home.
Thank you to the project leaders and teachers who have given their time and engaged young people with the beauty of sharing and caring about others.
