Title: AiA debut in America with exhibition on the 8 Millennium Goals
Art in All of Us will be hosting their American debut gala exhibition on Thursday, November 8th at NYU's Kimball Center on 246 Greene Street.
NEW YORK, NY- November 8th, 2007- Art in All of Us (AiA), an organization that promotes tolerance and creativity through developing artistic expression of some children of the world, will be hosting their American debut gala exhibition on Thursday, November 8th at NYU's Kimball Center on 246 Greene Street. Professional photographs will be available for purchase, with all proceeds to go to Art in All of Us initiatives. The opening will be from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door on the night of the event.
With art as a universal language, AiA works with children from all over the globe to break down the fear of other cultures and stimulate their curiosity. The exhibition will promote the importance of the Millennium Goals for Development, through photographs, as well as drawings and poetry prepared by children met by the team during their trips. The exhibition is targeting not only adults, but also children, stimulating them to know and learn about other countries and cultures.
Stephanie Rabemiafara, co-founder and photographer of AiA, explains: "Children are no different wherever they come from, wherever they have been raised. They are all eager to learn, all keen to express themselves and all want to be loved. Art in All of Us tries to help them in those quests."
The show has already premiered in Toronto, Santiago, Brussels, Milan, and Antwerp in the past year. It hopes to expand its reach in America by showing the influence and affects their mission has had on international children and cultures.
Phil Micali, an Art in All of Us International Advisory Board Members, based in New York describes the goal: "This event and exhibition brings a view of the world's children that we don't get to see very often, kids expressing themselves through art and poetry. As they share their works through AiA programs they develop tolerance by knowing the similarities and differences in each other, and appreciating them." The founders visited Iraq last month organizing AiA workshops. The results were astonishing.
Backed by UNICEF in New York, Art in All of Us has already visited 151 countries, and over 10,000 children in 220 schools with plans to visit at least one school of the 192 UN countries by the end of 2008.
