The traveling “Faces of Foster Care” exhibition makes a stop in Penn Station

"A picture may be worth a thousand words, but for foster children in New York City and across the country, a picture is worth improved self-esteem, and potentially, a new home and family." These moving words from CNN refer to photographic portraits of foster children in the "Heart Gallery," a traveling photo and audio exhibit that aims to find adoptive families for children in need of a home. Founded in 2001 by a professional photographer in New Mexico, the first "Heart Gallery" exhibition was so successful that Heart Gallery groups formed almost over­night across the U.S. to organize photography exhibits that have resulted in more than 5,000 children around the country finding their adoptive families. 

This month, Duggal proudly lent our support to the Heart Gallery NYC and worked with Executive Director Laurie Sherman Graff to exhibit 100 oversized digitally printed portraits for their new show "Faces of Foster Care." The show opened in November at the Amtrak Rotunda in Penn Station, with 4x5-foot enlarged portraits gently inviting viewers into their world while drawing attention to the mission of the organization: to help children living in foster care realize their dream of finding permanent, loving adoptive families to call their own.
