Event Details

For the first time in the United States.

Join Adam Frange, a Harvard University Teaching Fellow and Executive Director of the Community Health Council, as he talks about this very important Art Exhibit . A Canvas of Hope: Art by the Children of the Slums of the Amazon will take you into the lives of the Amazon's most impoverished communities. Proceeds that evening will go to benefit the Community Health Council and it's efforts to help the people of Belen,Peru.

For six months of the year, the neighborhood of Iquitos in Belen, Peru, is flooded by the Amazon River. A village that is already affected by extreme poverty, crime, and other humanitarian crisis, endures this wet season; spreading disease and threatening the lives of the most vulnerable, including the children.

A Canvas of Hope features art by the children who live in these desperate conditions and showcases their hopes for the future through their art work.Joining them in this exhibit is photographer Zag Adams, son of the world renowned Patch Adams, who was portrayed in the hit movie by Robin Williams. Zag has captured the every day plight and beauty of the people of the Amazon.
