Over the years I’ve had the great fortune to work with the wonderful organization Fresh Artists, started by Barbara Allen (I must tell you that Barbara recently won the Purpose Prize) and her son Roger Allen who is a fantastic designer. I first got to know Barbara and Roger through the hands down, best architectural photographer Jeffrey Totaro, with whom I’ve worked with for quite a while now. Over the years Jeffrey and I have photographed all the kid’s art work for Fresh Artists so they are able to make large copies of these awesome works of art made by kids!
Well, since my relationship with Fresh Artists has blossomed in recent times they have invited me along to be a part of yet another fun process for in their amazing organization, to be on their installation team. and below are a few photos of Roger and I from Fresh Artist’s latest (my second) installation at the organization Research for Action located in our lovely large town of Philadelphia. We installed about 20 pieces the walls of Research for Action and it was great to see the employees faces light up with excitement and joy as we continued bringing some office cheer with original works of art created by kids.
This is as serious as we get folks. It’s always a great time working with Roger and Barbara.
Ok, maybe this is a bit more serious.
Last but not least let me say that when you experience the incredible hope that Fresh Artists provides for so many children it makes me extremely proud to be apart of even a little bit of the things they are doing. I could write for ever about the things they’re doing and even how they have changed my life but I’ll leave you with the fact that they have changed my life and that you should let them change yours too.
