As of October 27, 2013, the third year of Syria’s internal conflict, 1,110,860 children, that is to say over one million children live as refugees in neighboring countries. This is more than the total number of children living in the city of Los Angeles. Over 3 million live inside Syria, displaced, orphaned, living in poverty, and caught in the line of fire. They need food, water, medicine, protection, and education.
The exhibition will be a pop-up, salon style exhibition at JAUS featuring works by over 100 artists from Southern California, in an effort to raise awareness, contribute to the humanitarian effort, and raise money that will be donated to UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) specifically directed to children affected by the Syrian crisis.
Every piece in the show will be available for $100. All proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to UNICEF’s efforts in Syria.
The works in the exhibition will span a variety of media, genre, and subject matter. In its entirety, we hope the project conveys a spirit of non-violence, co-existence and harmony among those with differentphilosophies and ways of life.
A special thanks to UNICEF and UNICEF Next Generation for their kind support. Also thanks to 18th Street Arts Center for their generosity and support.
