Cornell Fine Arts Museum has been an instrumental partner by co-hosting many memorable art events for foster children. On August 26th, children were able to experience a day of creativity.
During this event, children toured the exhibition, Patrick Martinez: American Memorial. Following the guided tour, the children ate lunch, and then created a memory keepsake box. They were provided a wooden, heart-shaped box and mixed media items, to decorate it. The children adored this project and worked diligently on their creations. They left, proud of their finished product, and ready to store special trinkets in their very own keepsake box.
Special thanks to Louise Buyo, Education Coordinator, Dr. Ena Heller, Bruce A. Beal Director of Cornell Fine Arts Museum, and Foundation volunteers.
