Ramon Nayar, artist and member of The Conservation Foundation, has created assemblies of empathy, an exhibit anchored in storytelling through words and images. The exhibit is on display at the Oesterle Library Gallery at North Central College in Naperville through January 3, 2018.
The Conservation Foundation and our Mighty Acorns® program are among the three non-profits Ramon has chosen to benefit from assemblies of empathy, and on December 7th there will be a Performance Night dedicated specifically to Mighty Acorns®. The evening will begin at 7pm in the Oesterle Library, and include original music composed and performed by Ramon, as well as narrative readings and the unveiling of the final mosaic in the assemblies of empathy exhibit.
"As a child, I've always had an affinity to nature and the great outdoors. Being able to both educate and empower the younger generations with the Mighty Acorns® Program has been an amazing experience to witness. As an artist, it's so inspiring to see the creativity both the educators and students share as they exchange ideas about biodiversity. It is the innovative, multi-dimensional components of this program that have fueled my own inspiration to create this body of work," said Ramon.
Please join us for this special evening celebrating our youth, the natural world, the arts and their ability to inspire us to work for good. The event is free and there is no need to register.
You can also stop by to see the exhibit during regular gallery hours through January 3rd. Ramon is donating 50% of all sales of wall art to Mighty Acorns® and the other two charities he has chosen, Chicago Lights and Hinsdale Humane Society, with an additional 25% given to North Central College's Fine Arts Center. The Oesterle Library Gallery is located at 320 E School Street in Naperville.
We would like to sincerely thank Ramon for his generosity in choosing our Mighty Acorns® program to benefit from this exciting display of his talent and creativity.
