Collections : Events : "Take Back Our Kids" Exhibition at Shelby County Juvenile Detention Center - October 2008

TAKE BACK OUR KIDS This unique exhibit features artwork created by youth at the Shelby County Juvenile Detention Facility participating in the Shelby County Arts Council's Take Back Our Kids Program. By the support of grants from CAWACO, Shelby County Commission and the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, the Shelby County Arts Council provides art programs including but not limited to photography & Photoshop, drawing and mixed media to juveniles at the Detention center. It is our goal to reach these youth on a new level, building self-esteem, self-confidence, and ability to work with others. Exhibit will be on display at the Shelby County Arts Council Gallery during the month of January, 2009.
