First Annual Portrait Exhibit Partnering with
Orchards Children’s Services – Children Waiting for Adoption
Welcome to the first annual Art&Soul of Oakland County traveling exhibit!
The Soul of a Child is Waiting…
Art&Soul of Oakland County is an initiative created to increase the rate of adoption for children in the Michigan Oakland County Foster Care and Adoption system. To achieve this mission, we have generated an exceptional, distinctive, traveling photo exhibit where every child is seen as a work of ART by showcasing the child looking for a forever family. The exhibit features photos of older children taken by nationally recognized and award winning photographers which demonstrates the commitment of the photographer to make the SOUL of the child visible. Art&Soul of Oakland County is a moving photo exhibit of older children looking for their forever families. The exhibit will visit special events, museums, charity events, theaters, hospitals, libraries, galleries, retail establishments, schools, places of worship, state and county offices and more over the course of a year. It is our goal that 75% of the children featured are matched with families, mentors or community opportunities. We believe that Oakland County residents will open their hearts to this sensitive and compelling exhibit.
The children in this exhibit are beautiful, they have many talents, they hope for better tomorrows, they worry about the unknown, they have waited too long, and they dream of belonging to a family. The children are hopeful that as this beautiful exhibit travels across Oakland County, a family will see them and know that they are their child.
