The Gordon A. Parks Gallery Presents "Sickle Cell Anemia: A Child's Perspective Through Art"
September is sickle cell anemia month, and the School of New Resources Gordon A. Parks Gallery is doing their part with the exhibit “Sickle Cell Anemia: A Child’s Perspective Through Art,” which features watercolors by Camille Yvette Lawrence Floyd. A reception and presentation was held on September 17, 2011.
Camille, who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia, uses painting to
bring about public awareness of the disease and hope for a cure. The exhibit was organized by Dr. Deborah Williams, MD, President and
CEO of Globalscope, a non-profit organization providing health outreach
and prevention education through seminars and workshops to the
community, research and advocacy of sickle cell disease.
The Gordon A. Parks Gallery & Cultural Arts Center
reflects the diverse interests of renowned photographer, filmmaker, and
writer Gordon Parks. The Center serves both Campus and community through
a variety of multicultural activities, including art exhibits,
lectures, poetry readings, and musical events.
The exhibit is presented on the John Cardinal O’Connor Campus in the South Bronx from September 10, 2011 through November 23, 2011.
