Lost Childhoods: Unofficial Stories art exhibit

 

Kinship Center is proud to be collaborating with the California Youth Connection, Foster Youth Museum, Hijos del Sol Arts Productions, Epicenter, CSUMB Guardian Scholars, and Santa Cruz Museum of Art in bringing a new exhibition to  the California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) Salinas Center for Arts and Culture/Steinbeck Center: “Lost Childhoods: Unofficial Stories”, starting this month, through July, 2018.
 
During the exhibition current and former foster youth artists from across California and Monterey County will tell their stories about some of the challenges they have faced. With more than 5,000 youth who age out of California’s foster care system each year, this transition is especially difficult. The exhibition will offer viewers the opportunity to take action to help support foster youth in Monterey County and beyond.
 
The exhibition features photography and objects from the Foster Youth Museum,
retablos created by ‘unofficial’ foster youth of Salinas, a video created in collaboration with Hijos del Sol Arts and Cinematic Arts Students and self-portraits created by Monterey County foster youth.
