The Resilience Art Festival marks another successful initiative that was kicked off 4 years ago by the Children’s Resilience Initiative (CRI). The festival originated when Teri Barila responded to the question “what does resilience mean to you”? This year, Whitman College stepped in and augmented the festival with a fund raiser.
The art was displayed at two locations. First, a booth was set up at the Farmers Market for the resilience art display. When the market closed at 1 pm the students moved the display to the Reid Center on campus where parents attended a Paper Tigers showing and bid on the art work. Donations from the proceeds were made in support of The Health Center at Lincoln High School.
Thank you Whitman for recommencement of this tradition!
