Located in historic Harlem, the Children's Art Carnival is an award winning, nationally recognized community based visual and communication arts organization. The Carnival's mission is to provide at risk and under-served youth with skills and opportunities that enable them to realize their potential for becoming positive, creative and productive adults through the use of visual and communication arts.

As a recognized leader in outstanding arts achievement, The Carnival has developed a variety of programs that integrate the visual and communication arts with education, vocational training and lifelong learning experiences.

"It's important to know that our lives make a difference -- that there's a way for us to contribute to humanity," says Marline A. Martin, executive director of the Children's Art Carnival. "For the past 36 years, The Carnival has used art as a powerful tool to build self-esteem, explore cultural heritage, develop critical thinking, cultivate artistic and leadership skills and build a sense of community among others. The works of art showcased in this exhibition is a testament to their artistic abilities and spiritual connection with themselves and the world around them."
