November 15, 2012 - CSU Bakersfield's Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) will be hosting its first fundraiser for the CSUB Children's Center. The art exhibit, titled "Images from the Heart", will feature 30 CSUB student paintings. The paintings will be silently auctioned the day of the event and all proceeds will benefit the CSUB Children's Center.
"We challenged the students to transform the paintings of children from the Children's Center into an art piece of their own. Part of the challenge was that the artist had to maintain the child's exact shapes in their new creation," said Hernan Hernandez, President, ASI.
Students from all across campus were invited to create art to be featured in the show. Most pieces that were selected to be included are works from art students and art majors studying at CSUB.
"Our center directly serves CSUB student-parents with the mission to support their education and ultimate degree. To be supported, in turn, by ASI and this auction and fundraiser is a wonderful example of campus-wide cooperation and symbiotic partnerships in the quest for excellence," added Gladys Garcia, Director of the Children's Center.
"Images from the Heart" will display the original child's drawing along side the artist's new rendition. The event will be held Thursday, November 15 from 5:00 pm-8:00 pm in the Multipurpose Room, located inside the student union.
