Kids Care 29: Landscape Journeys
About the Exhibition
Now in its twenty-ninth 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, Landscape Journeys, is inspired by Woodmere’s collection of Hudson River School art, paintings that convey the natural beauty of the American landscape. 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 18th.
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.
