Unchain My Heart Young Artists Build Healthy Lives

Young Artists Build Healthy Lives Through Art

La Plata Youth Services celebrated it’s 5th Annual Unchain My Heart Multi-Media Youth Exhibition at R-Space with over $1500 in youth art sales and 28 youth participants.  Many young artists sold work for the first time, driving up not only sales, but excitement and confidence when able to experience a professional art show.  The annual fundraising event also raised $4000 in donations, making this years’ event the greatest show of community support to the more than 800 at-risk youth LPYS serves each year.
