||Presidential Scholar, Amy Powers, spent the 2011-2012 school year learning from children’s rights organizations worldwide. Upon return, she faced this challenging question: How can I share my experiences in a compelling way with an audience separated from realities I saw, felt, lived? She turned to her passion for art for the answer.
This Presidential Scholar Art Exhibition gives a visual interpretation of Amy’s travels in Nicaragua, Ecuador, India, Tanzania, and Rwanda. Amy cordially invites the public to explore the concept of the rights of the child through the visual arts.
Artwork will also be for sale; all proceeds will benefit a children’s organization in Rwanda.
“What I have seen must be shared. It must be shared because it is heartbreaking, unbelievable, and a truth that many Americans never confront.”
