Hopes & Dreams: Children in Cambodia

January 19 - February 5

RECEPTION: Friday, January 29, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
ACC Fine Arts Gallery

Our next exhibition, Hopes and Dreams: Children in Cambodia, highlights education in a positive light. Dr. Leo Chan, the artist and program director of Digital Media Studies at UHCL, captured the essence of Cambodian children and their desire to learn life changing skills in school. It’s a moving collection of photographs and hand written dreams of children eager to learn and have careers that education can provide.

We’d like to invite community members, students and instructors to our gallery for the reception of Hopes and Dreams on January 29th from 6pm to 8pm. Come meet Dr. Chan and be inspired by destitute children with a passion for knowledge in a country where education is a rare privilege.

Below is a link to some of the photos that Dr. Chan took in Cambodia, highlighting the idea of the exhibit.
