Second Chances Art Exhibit committee invites you to submit to participate in the third annual fundraiser benefiting Blue Jacket. Each participating artist will be paired with a Blue Jacket client in order to depict their story through the visual arts. These works of art will be exhibited at the Rolland Art Center, off Leesburg Road, University of Saint Francis. Exhibition Dates are May 19, 2018 - June 22, 2018. Don't Miss It!
FWMoA is graciously hosting this event, allowing all proceeds from the event to fund the Career Academy (a two-week training program that helps any adult seeking a second chance at employment). The goal in 2017 is to graduate 300 adults and achieve a 90% employment rate, as experienced in 2016.
Artists develop relationships with their clients in order to tell their stories, a daunting and exhilarating experience. They are commissioned to portray significant life events of our fellow citizens who have fallen and stood back up. They shine a light on success, triumph, and hope regained.
