Inspiring Exhibit by Coalition Children

Posted on: January 8th, 2015

Appleton Creative's Appleton Awareness Gallery showroom.

Art by Coalition Children (ABCs) is a volunteer-based program that pairs professional artists in the community with children living at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. Last year over 250 local children participated in the program. Through painting, drawing and photography, the children are able to freely express themselves and are exposed to art as well. Appleton Creative currently displays some of these pieces in our own gallery, the Appleton Awareness Gallery. Located on the first floor of our historic home, the Appleton Awareness Gallery was established to bring attention toward local causes and needs through the power of imagery.

Twenty-three percent of the homeless in Florida are children under the age of 18. The Coalition for the Homeless provides an open and nurturing environment for the children to grow and learn. The average age of a child at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida is less than seven years old. This outreach program provides food, shelter, housing options, education, advocacy, support services, comprehensive children’s services and case management. Appleton is proud to support the Coalition by publically exhibiting art from the ABCs program. Guests are encouraged to stop by the gallery Monday through Friday, 9AM to 5PM.
