About CANVAS GALLERY AND GARDEN
CANVAS is a nonprofit organization that works with some of the country’s best artists and writers to publish – and give away – children’s books to kids in poor communities all over the country.
Our mission is anchored around the observable truth that visual narratives inspire imagination, especially among young viewers. We have faith in the power of art to enable meaningful storytelling. Art, after all, does not exist in a vacuum. It can shape minds and influence opinions. It can provide lasting legacies and lessons for future generations.
Each artwork in this show contains the seeds for countless stories. It is up to the viewer to unlock those that are most relevant and genuine for him or her. In this sense, each artwork is also an invitation to the viewers to find inspiration and become storytellers themselves.
