‘We Create Hope, Together!’
April 29 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
We asked Eddie Arias, our art contest winner, what inspired his work.
The inspiration for the design came from growing up with my older brother, Erick. When I was younger, I didn’t know about his condition, but his behavior was not any different than anyone I knew in school. My mom, my sister, and I did our best to teach him how to act properly and be used to noises, and now these things don’t affect him at all. It took our whole family to help raise him, and now he has grown up into a great young man. That is why everyone in the piece has a part of them in the heart. We all have to give our time and patience in order to make hope, and we need to do it, together. -Eddie
