Portraits of Hope is a Public Art Projects organization developed to offer creative art therapy for seriously ill children. For more than 12 years it has brought hope, joy, and avenues for personal expression and exploration to thousands. The project is currently exhibiting in Aspen where fire trucks and rescue vehicles have been wrapped in plastic coated panels of brilliant flowers which have been painted by local school children. The flower power motif is their message of “joy, life, youth, beauty, renewal and environment.”
