To foster appreciation for the role that artists play in our community as reporters, provocateurs, commentators, documentors and peers, Childrens Home of Pittsburgh is inviting artists to participate in A Loving Home which will take place on Saturday, 11th of May, 2002 at PPG’s Wintergarden.
Fine artists are invited to create paintings that translate themes of - adoption, loving homes, motherhood/parenthood - onto their canvases and master sculptors to do the same in whatever medium they prefer. All artwork will be exhibited in a public space (to be confirmed) in downtown Pittsburgh for a period of one week prior to the event and then they will be offered to A Loving Home guests to bid on.
The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh, established in 1894, is an independent, non-profit licensed organization whose purpose is to promote the health and well-being of infants and children through services which establish and strengthen the family.
The organization offers two programs, Infant Adoption and the Transitional Infant Care (TIC) Hospital. Since the founding of the Adoption Program they have placed over 7,000 children, on average 35 infants each year, with local families. The TIC hospital, the only hospital of its kind in the country, is a specialty hospital that provides care for premature and high-risk infants who require continued hospitalization following prolonged stays in traditional neonatal intensive care units. Since TIC’s inception in 1984, they have treated over 1,700 premature and high-risk infants.
