Art exhibition, fundraiser bringing awareness to children of Ghana

On September 3rd, Charleston non-profit organization Eye to Eye Foundation is holding a photo exhibition and fundraising party at Eye Level Art.

The Eye to Eye Foundation is aimed at liberating children and communities from the cycle of poverty by engaging individuals on both the domestic and international level in unique opportunities for academic and artistic expression with an emphasis in critical thinking, challenge-based academics, ethical leadership and subsequent local growth initiatives.

At Eye Level Art, Eye to Eye Foundation will be unveiling two long-term projects that they've been pursuing. The first being a photo project called, "Skinned Knees and Elbows," all about how children the world over, despite hell and high water, continue to exhibit joyful and playful youthfulness. The other is an international art project between the Jenkins Institute in Charleston, SC and the Royal Seed Home in Ofaakor, Ghana. 

From 7 to 11 p.m. there will be DJs (DJ JeffET and DJ Lanatron), $2 slices of D'Allessandro's Pizza, $3 glasses of local beer, $5 specialty liquor drinks, free body and face painting, and plenty of other interesting things to participate in.
