The Memory Project

These beautiful portraits are the faces of Syrian children living in a refugee camp on the border of Syria and Jordan.

American teenagers created the portraits from photographs as part of the Memory Project, which promotes international friendship and kindness.

Receiving the portraits brought smiles and joy, letting the children know that people around the world care. And for the teens, this was an opportunity to practice kindness, global awareness, and to rise above intolerance.

The portraits will live in the Children’s Museum on the wall next to Skyline Gallery through early fall. For more information on the Memory Project, please click here or watch their video below.
