SC HEART GALLERY COMES TO DRS BRUCE AND LEE FOUNDATION LIBRARY, IN FLORENCE, SC

The Heart Gallery movement began on March 29, 2001, at the suggestion of Santa Fe photographer and adoptive mother Cathy Maier Callanan, who was convinced that looking into the faces of foster care children would stir a connection. Cathy partnered with the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) to launch the first Heart Gallery exhibit. The portraits were created and donated by some of the region’s most talented photographers. The reception drew a crowd of people who were inspired by stirring portraits of children in CYFD custody who were dreaming of finding their “forever families”. (more…)
