Best National Adoption Month Awareness Campaign In Las Vegas (Art submission still being accepted)

Non-profit teams with downtown Las Vegas gallery to use art for social change

The non-profit organization That Adopted Girl has partnered with Eden Art Studio & Gallery in Downtown Las Vegas for what is being deemed, “the best National Adoption Month awareness campaign in Las Vegas.”

From November 7th to December 4th (First Friday) The Eden Gallery will host Forgotten Futures – an art collection bluntly illustrating issues with the foster care system and adoption. Art pieces depicting issues with the foster care system will be created by local Las Vegas artists. Other pieces are being created by teens in the foster care system, depicting their real life experiences of the system from the inside.

Las Vegas artists are welcome to contact coordinator@thatadoptedgirl.com for questions about submissions.

“It is important to not sugar coat things. When we look at things for what they are, we can move toward change, or at least social awareness. The art in the Forgotten Futures awareness campaign illustrates adoption and foster care issues in an upfront and easily digestible way. Our goal is to get people to pay attention.” – Juliana Whitney, Founder & President of That Adopted Girl Inc.
