Lost Dreams on Canvas re-launches at RHD with 18th annual memorial event

12/11/2012 1:17:20 PM
Contact: Kevin Roberts, RHD Communications, 215-951-0300 (ext. 3714) or kevinr@rhd.org

The Lost Dreams on Canvas “Season of Peace” Holiday Celebration and Memorial, bringing together families of children lost to violent crime for remembrance during the holiday season, will be Thursday, Dec. 13 at 5:30-8 pm at City Hall.

The 18th annual memorial event will include a presentation of recently completed portraits to family members, an installation of the entire Lost Dreams on Canvas exhibition, the “Rich Montgomery Heroes of Peace” Awards, Santa Claus and holiday toys for young siblings, entertainment and light refreshments.

Lost Dreams on Canvas is re-launching this year as a program of Resources for Human Development, a national human services nonprofit with corporate headquarters in Philadelphia. Lost Dreams on Canvas focuses on the arts as a community development, anti-violence tool. Through programs, outreach and exhibitions it will be a community gathering place for cultural enrichment, development of creativity and artistic ability, learning and productive expression. With the support of RHD, Lost Dreams on Canvas is seeking to expand and create a Peace Art Center.

More than 100 volunteer artists have donated their time and talent to paint more than 400 portraits of innocent murdered children. Unfortunately there are so many more portraits to paint.  Lost Dreams on Canvas is in need of many more good quality portrait painters interested in using their talent for a worthy cause.

About Lost Dreams on Canvas
A group of local war veterans were outraged when they heard about the senseless murder of five-year-old Marcus Yates, the son of a Marine Corps Vietnam Veteran.  Veteran Rich Montgomery was inspired to create the Veterans Against Drugs Organization to offer support for families of innocent victims of random crime.  Lost Dream on Canvas is the result of a unique partnership that began in 1993 when Mr. Montgomery contacted artist Judy Ringold to seek artists to paint portraits of the many children who were innocent victims of violence. Since 1993, Ms. Ringold has organized hundreds of volunteer artists to paint portraits of children who were innocent victims of violence. Completed portraits are presented to surviving family members while reproductions are mounted on modular display walls that travel around to schools and other locations as the centerpiece for anti-violence programming.

The portraits are moving.  The message is direct and strong.  Youth violence is out of control, a distressing trend that is among the most important issues facing our society today.  By memorializing crime’s young victims, the exhibit illustrates the toll that violence is taking on our young people.  The mission of Lost Dreams on Canvas is to reduce violence by making sure we do not forget while providing positive options. Without saying a word, this exhibition reminds us of why we need to stop violent behavior and create a better world.
