March 23, Bon Air Artists Association will feature 66 artists and their work in the Artful Healing show at the Jepson Alumni Center in support of World Pediatric Project.
World Pediatric Project is a non-profit organization based in Richmond that provides healthcare to children in developing countries in Central America and the Caribbean who do not have access to proper healthcare, according to the WPP website.
"There are a lot of students from UR that intern and volunteer with WPP, and we have a lot of support from local artists as well," Treva Thomas, director of development at WPP, said.
The association is estimating to raise between $15,000 and $25,000 for WPP, said Joyce Satterwhite, a member of the Bon Air Artists Association.
The art will include paintings, photographs, sculptures and 3-D pieces.
