In this exhibit North Idaho College drawing and sculpting students each chose from the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and were tasked with representing those articles through their art. Their work is an exhibition of Article 27: “Everyone has the right to freely in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts,” and Article 26: “Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the
strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.” Their art will be on display at HREI throughout this summer.
These posters depict art and text created by Coeur d’Alene youth. Inspiration for the children’s art springs directly from their interpretation of the United Nation’s Declaration of Rights of the Child. School Indigo, Hayden Meadows, Anchor House, Art on the Edge and Project Safe Place children participated in the original exhibit, which opened during Child Abuse Awareness Month in April of 2007 at the Human Rights education Institute. Contributing child artists range from three to thirteen years of age for the images displayed in this exhibit. Older teens produced a second multimedia series.
