VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that its Youth Leadership Program raised $30,000 for Art Studios through the Life of Art Young Artist Exhibition.
On June 3, the Life of Art Exhibition showcased works of art created by talented young artists between the ages of 6 and 18 from the Youth Leadership Program, which were featured in a silent and live auction. The proceeds from the auction went to Art Studios, a therapeutic art program for people living with mental health illnesses and addiction in Vancouver.
Held every year, the exhibition provides youth with the opportunity to create change and help others, while developing their creative and innovative potential.
