The newest installment of the Heart Gallery (www.heartgalleryofbroward.org) was unveiled Saturday night at the Ft. Lauderdale Art Museum. Lenny and I went to the fundraising event. We feasted on some very chic hor d'orvres (sp?), made a donation, and most of all saw three of my pieces hanging in the Ft. Lauderdale Art Museum!! Woot Woot!!! I can't even begin to tell you what a thrill it was. Now the photographs were only on display in the museum for the weekend, and today was the first day that this traveling exhibit of portraits made its debut at the Galleria Mall! It's quite a touching display as each three sided standing display board details the steps one must take in order to become a foster parent! For those just reading my blog, The Heart Gallery is a traveling photography exhibit that showcases portraits of children that are in the foster care program and are in need of families. The photographs are taken by volunteer professional photographers! Some of the most well known local photographers participate. So it's quite a thrill to be in such company! If you check out the Heart Gallery website all the photographers are listed along with bios.
So today I went with my parents to check it out and take some pictures. (I didn't want to bring my camera into the museum!) If you live in the area please take the time to visit the Heart Gallery.
