How the Portrait Connection Brings Artists and Families Together

The creation of art, and especially painting, is often a solitary pursuit, but a new project called ‘Portrait Connection’ is giving local artists a chance to work with children who are facing difficult challenges and leaving their families with a piece of art that marks a specific moment in time.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan followed two artists and the families of two children as they prepare for what is sure to be an emotional unveiling in downtown Bend on Friday.

The unveiling of the portraits, as well as the artist/family meet ups, will take place Friday night at LAYOR Art + Supply in Bend on Wall Street at 5 PM.
