Children's Art Carnival

Between June 7-June 18, the walls of Macy Gallery were lined with eye-catching, colorful artworks, including painted self-portraits, with the World Trade Center in the background; tissue paper collages with an array of images, including butterflies, geometric shapes and a photo of the Obamas; and nichos, multimedia sacred objects with roots in Latin American folk art.

The one hundred works of art were made by students, ages 14-18, who participated in the Harlem-based Children's Art Carnival (CAC) Programs, which run art workshops for area youth; this year marks the first time the CAC has held the exhibit, which is co-sponsored by Columbia University's Office of Government and Community Affairs, at Macy. A reception took place on Friday, June 11, which was attended by TC community members and Children's Art Carnival supporters, as well as some of the participating artists.
