Chicago DCFS Art Exhibit
An exhibit titled “Art From Youth in Care and From Others Who Care” will be on display, open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.daily, through Friday, April 25, 2014, on the main level of the Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph Street in Chicago, IL. The exhibit will feature art from children who are currently in care, or have been in care, and by artists who have been affected by child abuse.
The art depicted often captures the hidden emotions a child is experiencing. It frequently reveals the individual’s true story of abuse or neglect, and it helps to gauge where the child is emotionally. Art therapists say expressing feelings through art aids in the healing process.
This exhibit is presented by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and Prevent Child Abuse Illinois.
For more information on the art display, the public can call 312-814-6847.
