OJOS nuevos: exhibition at UARCIS


The first exhibition of OJOS nuevos has completed its run in the Universidad ARCIS. On display from December 11 to December 21, the exhibition included a portrait of each girl and 8 of the photographs that she took throughout the course of the class. You can see all of the photos from the exhibition in this photo set. If you would like to have a show featuring these photographs, please contact me to arrange it.

Located in downtown Santiago de Chile, UARCIS offers degrees in art and social sciences. Neither Hogar San Francisco de Regis nor VEGlobal had a previous connection with UARCIS. But, as one of our responsibilities at the hogar is to walk some of the girls back to school after lunch, and UARCIS is around the corner from the hogar, I quickly took note of the university's entrance and soon found the name and web address printed on some posters there. After emailing the university one time with a proposal to host our exhibition, they immediately invited me to a meeting. The university blew me away with their support. From the presentation of the girl's work in the auditorium, to the posters and invitations they printed, to the continued relationship with my organization and with San Francisco, I am really happy that we have built this connection. You can see photos taken at the exhibition and of the university here.

We are very happy to have received enough donations to produce this first OJOS nuevos digital photography class, but we still have a long way to go. To bring this kind of opportunity to more children, we need your continued support. Please contact me if you would like to partner with us in support of this program, and you can also always contribute online at this site. Thank you!
