Annual Art Show for Children’s Advocacy

ArtMEDFORD, Ore. — Teens who have been helped by the Children’s Advocacy Center, and people who have a stake in the Living Opportunities Program, are showing off their talents to help kids this week.

On Thursday, staff were loading paintings for the annual art show, which will feature 30 paintings. This is the fifth year the studio at living opportunities and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Jackson County is partnering for this event.

“Art is that wonderful thing that transcends all disabilities and really everything and to support this you’re supporting the art work, you’re supporting the artists who do it and you’re supporting the organization.” said Dan Mish, at the Studio at Living Opportunities.

The artists will get some of the proceeds and half goes to the organizations. The attendance last year was 350 people. They’re expecting to have close to 400 people. There will be live music, food and drinks. The event is Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Veranda Park.
