Kid's Photo Exhibit - Smallwater

Rockaway Beach, NY 11693
Description: Spurred ahead by the insistent and consistent need for children's healing in the wake of Sandy, the Art Relief Caravan Project launched their photography workshop in the Rockaways. Guided by the award-winning photo-journalist Ron Haviv and the caravan project team of art therapists, kids from communities that were adversely effected by Hurricane Sandy learned how to frame their experiences, both physical and emotional. Photos of their external realities are being printed and layered with painted expressions of their internal worlds, thereby giving expression to their fears and dreams in order to find both hope in the future and solace in the present. Take an opportunity to view this work, and meet the artists, their families and Ron Haviv.
