Tri-County Exhibit: A Showcase for Artists, a Benefit for the Poor

Haiti Hats by Benjamin Rusnak

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Sept. 1, 2011) — An art exhibition may be a delight for the eyes, but the creativity it takes to make an image come to life takes talent and passion. Food For The Poor is also passionate about what it does on behalf of the poor, and is excited about its first “Art Embracing Hope” or “Härt Exhibition" that it will host in three South Florida cities this fall.

A kaleidoscope of nearly two dozen international and local artists will delight, dazzle and inspire with their visual interpretations. Every work of art is for sale, and each piece sold will allow Food For The Poor to provide much needed help to hundreds of destitute families in the countries we serve.

Here’s how it will work: At each venue, there will be a silent auction, a raffle and an opportunity to donate. A percentage of each art piece sold also will go to the artist. Some of the drawings to be auctioned were created by the children Food For The Poor serves in Latin America.
