Children of San Jose Del Negrito

[ART] On Saturday, March 7, local photographers Alexis Oltmer and William Bergmann will be exhibiting and selling their travel photos from Honduras at CEPA Gallery as a fundraiser for the non-profit, Shoulder to Shoulder Pittsburgh, whose mission is to provide health care and training for health professionals from the area of San Jose Del Negrito. Since 2001, this organization has provided humanitarian aid to the region that was devastated by Hurricane Mitch. San Jose Del Negrito is a remote mountain village of about 1600 people whose living conditions are beyond poor, and just recently (June 2014) started receiving electricity. Oltmer and Bergmann traveled with the organization to help complete the construction of the playground and community center, and while there documented their surroundings. All proceeds from the sale of the photographs will be donated to Shoulder to Shoulder, to assist with their future projects. And mark your calendars for March 27, where Board Members of Shoulder to Shoulder and the artists will discuss their work and time spent in Honduras.

free, donations welcome
