Respect Diversity Symbol Exhibit Gala

These art works are from the Respect Diversity Symbol Exhibit Gala To learn about projects of the Respect Diversity Foundation visit: http://www.respectdiversity.org/;

I have the great privilege of assisting Gail Sloop with her Honors Art after school program at Sequoyah Elementary School. The artists, which include Ezri, my nine year-old daughter, are third to fifth graders with a great imagination.
This is detail of the A Seat for Rosa, by the students at Geary School in honor of Rosa Park’s refusal to give up her seat which began the movement for equality. I love the quote "Everyone smiles in the same language."
My children are very talented young people. My other daughter, Alexia goes to Harding Fine Arts in Oklahoma City, so this one also has a special connection.

  1. I too love that quote! It's great. This is an awesome art event. I alwasy enjoy looking at art made by kids - they seem to be so free in their art, no inhibitions, and they just love to explore new things.
