Opening reception for ‘Children of War’ exhibit
This reception kicks off artist Michael Fischerkeller’s portrait exhibit that showcases children who have been impacted by warfare. His work seeks to highlight the plight of children in war-torn regions as they often become soldiers, laborers or even sex slaves. Despite the atrocities they face, the portraits address the inner strength, determination and grace of these children.
Donations from the reception and sales from the exhibit will go toward charitable organizations that render aid to children who are victims of war.
The exhibit will be on view until Nov. 3.
When: Thursday, Sept. 27, 6-8 p.m.
Where: Hotel Indigo, 24 W. Franklin St.
