The Printmaking Club will be exhibiting and selling “Paper Prayers” in the Newtown Campus Library. The artwork will be sold for a minimum donation of $5 each and all of the proceeds will be donated to the Family Service Association of Bucks County. FSABC provides prevention education, housing assistance, support groups, and other help to people infected by the HIV/AIDS virus.
Paper Prayers is an AIDS awareness exhibition that is held in conjunction with World AIDS Day on December 1. The tradition is derived from the Japanese practice of offering colorfully decorated strips of paper as a prayer for good health and well-being. In this project, 4-inch x 12-inch strips, featuring a variety of handcrafted media are hung vertically around the walls of an exhibition space.
