Yo Soy...Je Sui...I Am....The Future
While I was at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art on Saturday, I popped in to the Young@art Gallery to see what was on display. The exhibit was from the annual VSA International Art Program for Children with Disabilities art exhibition. The children were asked to answer these questions in their artistic expressions:
Who will I be in the future?
Where will I live?
What are my hopes and dreams?
How will I change the world?
The art was very inspiring. The photo above is from 10-year old Aden C. of Manassas Virginia. It's called Colorful Patterns and being a lover of all patterns, it really appealed to me.
16-year old Nicholas B created the piece above called Symphony Rift. Nicholas is from Wahiawa Hawaii and I'd say he has an exceptional artistic talent.
This last one is from 18-year old Hali G. from Arizona and it's called simply "self-portrait".
The VSA organization was founded by Jean Kennedy Smith 35 years ago and is now part of the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
